We took an end-of-summer walk
to the DQ with my parents.
It’s a stroll that
I loved taking with my Nana and Baba
when I was a kid,
so I’m thrilled my boys
can have a similar experience.

The true treat of the evening
was not actually ice cream,
but this radiant sky,
bursting with the setting sunlight
and casting an unmistakeable
“all-will-be-alright” glow
upon the world below.
Let there be light!
