Sensory Detail - Starry Night

The breath of June pushes into the night air like a serpent in mud, dragging a thick milky veil in its wake and threatening to suffocate the moon and stars as they writhe in protest. Crickets and cicadas trade verses over the murmuring whispers of the young grasses and leaves, a steeple bell chimes apologetically in the distance. The ground is cool and damp to the touch, new plants like yellow green whiskers peer out expectantly from the darkness of the soil, carrying with them the unmistakable, fecund aroma of nature keeping her promises.
