More Time, Moon, and Stars

2014-03-15 20.29.35

We stood outdoors under that bright moon clearing between the branches, a sheer white circle reflected in the pane of glass behind us. The window framed the light while we stood there close to each other, the air almost warm enough to keep us standing in our bare feet on the wood porch. It was the twinkling dots that amazed us, drove him to lift his tiny arms, reach his fingers up towards the dark sky. After the long cold months, it was the first time this season we could clearly see the twilight markings, the blue and plum. I suspect there are many more luring nights ahead, more star-dust falling above us, more time outside together.
