Tonight

I have no photos.

Swimming 20 lengths of the pool.

Bats flying overhead.

The occasional lost firefly blinking on and off in the woods.

After the 20 lengths, floating face up listening to my heartbeat, watching the bats flying above me. I felt as if I was still afloat in amniotic fluid. A child reborn.

Frogs croaking.

A dog doing so well after his second chemotherapy treatment that it makes my heart sing.

The first cicada heard today while floating in the pool with hubby. Not the guest cicadas, but the real ones that come every year. Welcome, cigales.

 

Goodnight world. All is well. At least for now.

Comments:

Glad your world is all well, I know it’s been stressful lately.  Wonderful description that really made me visualize what you were seeing and hearing!

Good. I’m glad to hear it. smile

No photos needed!
