When I woke up sputtering for air….
(Apnea is so weird,)
I decided to make tea
and sip it under the stars.
Under the mid- August, Perseid meteor shower.
I noticed that our young guest’s light was on,
he was sneezing, pointing to the cat.
We made him a hot chocolate
and out we went on a midnight adventure.
Sitting on the bridge
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”
Together filling up on stars
filling up on wonder!
