Stargazing

June 23, 2008

White creeps across

blue-black skies,

dissipating moon’s

soft glow into

curtain of distant

light, silhouetting

trees and wires,

twining slowly

across pin-prick

stars, swallowing

night sky, filling

air with scent

of rain, teasing

parched nostrils,

brushing away

long day of heat

with soft breeze.

Small comfort,

but enough

for another

day.
