Spring in the garden, Dusk falls and the night blooming jasmine bursts with fragrance. Suddenly I want to check on the newly planted blooms and my new friends. All is thriving in the warmth of this new season. I watch the jays taunt in evening song and cacophany The cats nonplussed and disinterested. A star, or is it a planet, becomes visible as the evening sky darkens Brightening in reflections of other stars, oh so far away. The light continues to fade. Noctural pests begin their scavenging I am bit.
