Umpft! Snort! Stretch….ahhh!
What am I hearing?
COYOTES! The Coyotes are close…right in the bean field!
WAKE UP MOM!!! HOWWWWWWWWWWWWWL!
I ran to the grain bins and bayed to the coyotes…Scram you nasty critters! I yelled. About that time I heard Mom outside–Good! She scared them away!
I trotted back to Mom and we sat on the back step.
Wow! What a beautiful night! It made heart lift in great joy!
So much so I walked into the middle of the lawn; lifted my nose way up in the air, made my mouth into a tiny o, and let out a plaintive sound.
I sang and sang for a very long time. Trying to reach back, back in time to all those that came before.
When I was done Mom called me over and gave me a big hug. “I understand, Boomer. I wish I could reach back in time also” she said.
We sat on the back step, just mom and I, letting the silver light flood over us.
