The Stars Last Night

Last night around 1000pm something told me to go out and look up the sky.
I stood in my front yard and I saw: the continuous cover of clouds over us for a week or so finally broke at least for a while, and there was a bright full Moon and a field of stars with just a few ragged wisps of dark clouds here and there. It was quiet on our street and there was a cold wind; the weather felt rather like in April than almost-June.
And I stood there and it was good: cold, distant star-and-moonlight with that crystal clear clarity one gets on nights like that.
And then The Husband came out and we stood there at the end of the driveway together for some time, just breathing, hands entwined, being content with each others'presence, and the quiet, cool light bathing the street, bathing us.
The one of our stray cats came up and purred, and we picked her up and scrached her behind her ears, and she purred some more; and that was good too, just different.

Cool star-and-moonlit nights--I missed those!
