Hoping for illumination

You got that right:
I want it all --
the deep teal of the water,
the brightwork
(but not the upkeep)
the contrast
of whitewrapped sail,
the crisp thin line
of white against the blue,
the shadow and the light...
and so I wait, and prowl the docks;
return again and again
with my expectant camera,
hoping for some brief illumination...
