Why I Look Up

To see a dense, petrifying fog roll in from the West;
To see the moon, almost full, peering its way through this blanket of grey mist;
To experience perfect timing, as the sky cleared completely,
in a tiny patch,
as a  bullet of a star
struck across the sky
and faded--
exploded beauty--
an unexpected wish--
on an exceptionally warm November night.
