A Summer Evening Swim

Rating: 3.5

I swim on my back, watching the Summer evening sky.
Air temperature is 78, pool water 90 degrees Fahrenheit.
It's now 8: 30 in the evening
Sunset was just gone but full moon doesn't rise yet.
Scattered stars hang like night lanterns.
Cicadas sing loudly and crickets join their chorus.
A group of bats weave their paths above the pool
In dim evening light, they hunt for insects.
Far away, landing airplanes give light signals.
Nightlights just turn on around my house

Five cats rest with their limbs fully stretched.
