Stargazers, 71 and 13

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”

Ahhhhhhhhhh, eeeeeeeeeee,

Together filling up on stars

filling up on wonder!
