The Long Night

Processed with VSCOcam with hb1 presetBy John Homan

I slept on a mountain once –

Under the stars in the Eastern Oregon Desert.

We piled quilts on sandy ground next to the fire,

Ate cherry pie for dinner,

Listened to my J.C. Penny boombox while the batteries lasted.

There were coyotes howling in the distance.

A cold bed,

A long night.

A moment I wouldn’t trade.
