We were in the Philippines one holiday and the night was clear. All the stars, planets and the moon were there, and they were amazing to watch. So Him Indoors and I decided to lie down on the grass as we admired them. We felt so tiny compared to the universe, but glad that we were all part of it. Great night to remember!

starlight star bright
making a wish as we count
amazing wonder


wispy clouds across
boats rise and fall in the lock
lazy hazy day

sea lay without a ripple
cupped my hands and drank water

drips falling from lips
ah, the sweet taste of heaven
cool and refreshing

rough winds shake the darling buds
more lovely and temperate

palm trees swaying
clouds scudding across the sky
heaven knows why

have picnics by the seabed
open sunlit grass, cloudless

splashing with the waves
friends waiting for the sunset
the joy of summer

light of the silvery moon
never ending stories

all through the night
singing and dancing with joy
tired and sleepy

birds flying as dawn breaks
memories on shortest night
