Life’s parts

I looked up tonight and saw the moon

had made her appearance in the dusky sky,

For a moment I was stunned

and snapped her picture on my phone,

and soon the rain began to patter,

lightly in the garden

you could hear it on the barn

as though an angel had told the passing cloud,

now’s a good time,

so the little rhythm carried on

like a gentle note of its part in life

until it passed through and I knew,

that was life’s sweeter part.
