Summer Nights

Day 50 prompt: nightlife

 

I remember

summer nights

on the farm

lying on a blanket

in the yard after dark

trying to count the stars

and losing track

somewhere

in the hundreds

 

I remember

July evenings

not quite quiet

while purring cats

tweeting crickets

and whispering cornfields

entertained

the silent stars

 

I remember

cool breezes

and rumbling thunder

raising the volume

as lightning brought a flicker

to the night’s lights

flashing signals

of goodnight
