Parabola
By Christopher Roe

In the final days
of my seventieth year
the full moon
tugs the water
in my brain
and I think of
the arc of my life
descending
like a rainbow
into the sea
parabolically.

    Christopher,
    Love the use of “parabolically” both as math and allegorical symbols. A striking image that I (in my sixty-eighth year) will long remember.
