“The Milky Way”

“By now it was late. The scene before, below, and above the friends was marvelous. The Milky Way looked like a gigantic brain spread across the middle of the sky. A central spine of plum purple rose up to their left at a sixty-degree angle. This spine overlay a roughly elliptical patch colored in faint peach and glowing pale lemon. Bright stars shone out of this galactic mass like points in a heavenly Connect the Dots placemat for children. The moon shone a wondrous soft light on the sides of the great boulders edging the cove. The water in the cove was peacock blue and, where it landed on the beach, spumy suds stretched white feathery fingers out into the blue. A profound hush enveloped the scene, as though God himself were holding a finger to his mouth to invoke respectful silence.”
