She Waits…

Wrapped in her granny’s quilt
Gently swaying in the board and rope swing
her daddy made when she was four
 
She waits…
 
Twilight and the sky is purple
Full dark still minutes away
 
Eyes peeled for the first star
She has done this ritual
since she was little
sitting on granny’s lap
Waiting…
 
Smiling…
First star and now for the
Starlight poem
Next to show…
The Dippers ~ Big and Little
Finally…
Orion’s Belt
 
She always looks for them
always the same order
just as granny taught her
 
Waiting…
 
Until she finally rises
just above the trees
Her Moon…
And…
Her heart beats faster
As she praises the beauty
of another Full Moon
