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

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
