Night Sky

Tonight the moon is full. The stars are bright. Winds that have been buffering our home for days are now just intermittent gusts. Jupiter is beaming its bright light up by the moon. Clouds are puffing over the top of the mountain out my window.

Town is aglow. The dog is drifting off. The cat has just come in. The little boy has been asleep in my bed for hours. The merry melody of the Great British Baking Show is running around my head.

A small but growing foot is pressed warm against my knee. I feel utterly content. This is the moment I’ve been waiting for.

Good night.
