so passed the night


i lay under the stars 


admiring fireflies and the celestial display



summer triangle above

  vega blue-white

in lyre, denab in cygnus

  altair in aquila


sleep wouldn't come

  the old familiars soothed

polaris, ursa major, ursa minor, cassiopea

 sleep wouldn't come


familiar sounds 


a faint siren, coyotes 



sleep wouldn't come

the sky lightened

I am liking this much: cool, clear, vivid, skilled, poised poetic language.
