The crisp Winter air had descended upon us with the setting of the sun. The night held a milky hue in suspension as we climbed the front stairs and a full moon in all it's luminescent splendour shone from the jet sky above. Flanked by tiny sprinkles of glitter this glowing orb caught your full attention and I hesitated at the door for you to drink it in. Eyes froze still with lashes closing only momentarily to refresh their liquid and pupils instantly dilating to absorb the brightness with ease.
I watched as the corners of your mouth began to curl heavenward as your knowing of the natural world surfaced. This moon was one you had seen many times before and you knew it all too well yet you viewed it this night with such wonder and serenity as if it had only shown itself to you for the first time. It's beauty washed over you and sunk deep into your pores. You radiated pure joy.
For an age we stood there in silence, you marvelling at the moon and I marvelling at you. I felt my own mouth mirror yours but not from the magnificence of this celestial body did this feeling sporn. Enveloped in the warmth of your discovery and happiness my own took shape. Bathed in incandescence we stood together you and I and the joy brought me to tears. I turned my gaze to the moon and beheld such a sight. For the first time I saw it through your eager eyes and its delicate bloom took my breath away.
My baby, I will hold your hand as your limbs stretch and grow and your imagination and learning ignites. Together we will view this world with new eyes and I will bask in all it's radiance.
I am dancing about in the glow of the sunset wearing Remy in the Sakura Bloom Simple Silk Sling in Pebble.
