The moon 'wanted more of my night'
(hat tip to the line from Dar Williams' song
'Calling The Moon').
No matter how much I tried to go back to
sleep, her pull eventually brought me to the
window. Crickets and other night creatures
were a-buzz in a chorus of 'Brava!' while the
moon took center stage. The more my eyes
adjusted, I could even see a few stars in the
sky...in supporting roles.
The last verse of Dar Williams' song kept
playing over and over, in my mind:
"Calling the moon,
'Cause I know what it's worth
To tug at the seas and illumine the earth,
Oh, I am calling the moon,
Oh, I am calling the moon."
