Goodnight moon.

Goodnight moon. Your glow infused the night sky and guided my feet through the dark streets this hot night. You've earned a sweet rest. Goodnight stars. Your subtle shine reminded me to keep pushing through, that my efforts may be small but they help me shine in the dreariness of it all. Goodnight my million fireflies. You brought me through the miles with comforting thoughts of home. Goodnight sweet summer air. You nearly suffocated me and I hope a cool breeze comes through and kills you.

In the shower,

  1. reminds me of my son's favorite book:

    In the great green room
    there was a telephone
    And a red balloon
    And a picture of--

    The cow jumping over the moon

    and there were three little bears, sitting on chairs

    and two little kittens and a pair of mittens

    and a little toy house and a young mouse

    and a comb and a brush and bowl full of mush

    and a quiet old lady who was whispering "hush"

    Goodnight room

    goodnight moon

    goodnight cow jumping over the moon

    goodnight light and the red balloon

    goodnight bears goodnight chairs

    goodnight kittens goodnight mittens

    goodnight clocks and goodnight socks

    goodnight little house and goodnight mouse

    goodnight comb and goodnight brush

    goodnight nobody goodnight mush

    and goodnight to the old lady whispering "hush"

    goodnight stars, goodnight air

    goodnight noises everywhere.
