An hour before dawn, I stumbled into the closet and pulled on whatever came first to hand, then stumbled out the front door.

The air was cool. High gauzy clouds draped a dark sky, kissing a mother-of-pearl moon.

I sighed, my sleep-fuddled brain translating the clouds to the moment, No Perseids for me. But before I could lower my gaze, a glowing white streak seared the sky, between me and cloud.

One last silent minute and I smiled my way back to bed.
