up in the middle of the night
new moon tonight, which means no moon,
stars are unbelievable, plentiful and bright,
a shooting star

check in on their flight status
they are in the air, starting their trip over the pond
from London to Newark, it's 4 am montana time
they have over 7 hours in the air before they arrive to Newark

check e-mail and there are a dozen photos from their host Bertil
the three travelers on their last day in Nairobi,
checking in on Our Kids in Kibera
at the airport checking in to their first flight
and their journey home

my allergies are stuffing up my nose
and burning my eyes
need to get back to bed
and get the second half 
of my often interrupted sleep
