Sky and moon
I was looking at the sky late yesteday afternoon; the dark clouds were gathering, I thought there would be a storm, or, if not a storm, then at least rain because it had been a very hot day. The moon, half her usual size, a distant and faded button on the blue coat of the sky. The clouds beneath her frothy, and a yellow patch of light like a golden yolk. There was no rain and the dark clouds passed. It was very hot overnight, which made sleeping difficult. I remember at one stage dreaming of faces - noone I know in particular, but everyone looked young.
