My Stars   Leave a comment

Mist around the street lights

Bullfrogs comment from the pond

A single katydid still chatters

We unroll our towels that will come up ripe with grass clippings, and set our sights upward

Between the black outlines of the trees and across the Milky Way

and Cassiopeia

They come

Flickers

streaks

flashes even

The Perseids, more than one a minute, dropping fast

As one, then another of us calls out, there’s one

there’s another

did you see that one?

My little stars all around me, all grown up now

We watch the meteors

My stars
