last night was moonless
the stars were abundant
Deneb, Altair, Vega ...
then four shooting stars
one spiky-pointed ISS fly by
(so close, can almost see the solar panels
or so it seems)
no Iridium Flares,
buts lots of satellites
traversing

two -or was it three? - owls gossiping
Who? Who?
and one surprised raccoon
trying to get at the hummingbird feeder

this morning is cold enough for long pants
my legs can feel the impending closure
of this summer

ghost sign

from a plaque attached to the building (132-138 Bank St):

"The corner building, designated as a heritage building by the City of Ottawa, is a good example of late 19th century commercial architecture. Built in 1891 by William Cousens, its first tenants included a grocer, a shoe store, a florist, and a photographer, G.A. Snider, whose advertising sign is still visible. The Facade illustrates the importance of a corner site through the use of high quality masonry construction and decorative brick, stone and terra cotta. Its exuberant mix of Queen Anne and Italianate styles typifies the expansionary mood of the 1890s."
