Cusp of Summer

Posted on: June 19, 2009

There was going to be more last night. Instead Noah and Sophie led me into the side yard to our little berm, where we dug our toes in the grass and watched Jupiter rise in the west trailing its chain of moons. It was warm and muggy, pillowed with clouds in the east. Sophie said, [the stars are] like diamonds. Noah said, Yes, and the night’s as warm as skin, don’t you think, Dad?
