The house in the alley
leading up to the playground
in the dark, the children wonder
will the slides be slippery or
since it is so muggy, will they be
sticky or worse, will they be wet?
Reassuring them, we can walk back
to get the beach towels in my car.
We had finished “inspecting” the new
construction of the walls along the
creek or stream that separates my
Apartment building from the
campus of Ohio Wesleyan.
Now, their reward for being
night explorers, the cousins
my Grandies were going
to play on St. Mary’s
nor locked up.
Searching for unique
and strange things is
the “mode of operandi”
for these stealthy detectives!
When I told them the moon has
two special Native American names,
my grandchildren were delighted.
Full Buck Moon
or the other mighty name is,
Full Thunder Moon.
