Fingernail moon in a dark dark sky



At five am a fingernail moon and stars prick holes in the dark night sky. The wind is falling away again. Inside the warm house the cats drip and draped ginger warmth over soft cushions. The dogs curl and dream in their baskets, waiting for morning. Kiffer, who loves the night, is out hunting the hedgebanks.
Pixie breathes easier, face clean and eyes bright.

Love that picture of Pixie's paws curled around the hand that holds her. Lovely picture of you too Jackie. Great to hear you on the radio too.

Kiffer the Hedgebank Hunter! Now there's an image... out with his ginger sou'wester and his eyes like moons... under the hedges... watching and waiting...

Mum used to tell me that in India, the fingernail moon was called Shiva's Moon and that he wore it in his hair.

Every description is better and better. I would come to visit you without the pictures -- just for the writing. Take good care of Pixie

Glad Pixie is better - and love the photos.

I've nominated you for an award - details on my blog.

gorgeous photos and writing on your blog, hope Pixie is fully recovered soon. I'll be back to visit again!

I hope the mouth sores mend quickly, so Pixie can get back to the business of eating a hearty meal before going on a walk-about.

Good to hear that Pixie is getting better, wishing her the speediest of recoveries.

Griffin said...

Hmm, thanks to Moonroot, I've also nominated you (and the three) for an award. Apologies to the cats that the award isn't something that can either be slept on or eaten.

I hope Her head is not hurting so much now that the ginger ones are feeling better.

Like everyone else here I'm just glad Pixie is OK. Get well soon and get plenty of rest (all of you). Keeping an eye on you from New Zealand - hugs and gentle strokes to the sick.

Purrs to you all.
