My attempt at a Hokku.  This was a quick break, due to a quilting miss hap and dead lines. Won’t bore you here,  if interested see my quilting blog : Dolores Quilts

old blankets gathered
heading into the night air

sitting in the dark
eyes begin to adjust
first bright star appears

stretch out on the driveway
unspoken words gathering

as the father speaks
children follow his finger
counting the stars

Vega shines bright
whole constellations unfold

lightening bugs waltz
small hands grab at the lights
cupped hands glow

interest fades, beds sweetly call
one dreams under flower moon
