Wish upon a star.

Rain came quite unexpectedly

on the summer wind,

wetting the parched ground,

bringing a gentle coolness to the air,

and the subtle promise of more rain,

yet here I sit happy,

watching the stars appearing,

and a near full moon huge and shining down,

and If I could wish upon a star,

it would be; to be close to my wife,

and that the people of the world

could learn to live with love, understanding,

equality, and have a reverence for

the world around them,

leaving greed and violence way behind.

Instead under the moon I say my prayers,

before sleep envelops me.
