Voices in the night

leave a comment »

Fireflies are out in full force this evening…winking in and out of existence on this last day of May. ┬áThe moon is hanging high…and silently… in the clear, darkening sky. It’s Summer’s eve again…another year gone by. Last night I awoke to coyotes howling and baying in the moonlight…a very lonely and eerie┬ásound that made my skin tingle. I’ve never seen them…but I know they’re out there. I’m strangely comforted by their presence…and I also know that Belle is quietly…and alertly…listening to these plaintive…and in some way vaguely familiar… voices in the night.
