When I woke up sputtering for air….
(Apnea is so weird,)
I decided to make tea
to sip it under the stars.
mid- August, Perseid meteors above.
Our young guest’s light was on,
he was sneezing, pointing to the cat.
Making him a hot chocolate
we went out into the night…
Sitting on the bridge the two of us
a granny and a boy
with a clear view of the night sky.
Faces turned toward the Milky Way
Saying things like…..
“Did you see that one?
or “Oh how quick”
filling up on stars,
filling up on wonder!
