There's an Air of Love and of Happiness

Ode to Summer:

Last night when John got back from having dinner with his mom,

We sat on the porch with our cat.

The sun was just setting, leaving brilliant streaks of peach and coral in its wake.

It would "not go gently into that good night".

It would make a grand exit.

And as it sunk and the sky darkened, we noticed the blinking lights in our yard -

On and off. On and off.

Lightning Bugs.

Our cat lifted his head and became very attentive, thinking it was something he might hunt.

But quickly realized it was outside of his domain on the other side of the screen.

He laid his head back down and we all enjoyed the second act.
