Stargazers, 71 and 13

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”

Ahhhhhhhhhh, eeeeeeeeeee,

filling up on stars,

filling up on wonder!
