I was returning from my evening swim as I saw the clouds and moon playing hide and seek! I loved how the moon illuminated the clouds and the clouds covered the moon just a bit, revealed it completely and then covered it entirely. I waited (in my sundress with the mosquitos) about 15 minutes at one point for the dark clouds to part: “Oh, my what a big mouth you have!?” “All the better to swallow the moon whole,” this wolf seemed to say!

“….and then wolf got indigestion and spit the moon out. And, my children, that’s why the moon sometimes disappears and then returns. The end.”
