Litany

each rain drop

is a litany

of every wish sent up

at night,

wishing on falling stars

and the whispered promises

made to the moon

 

the sky gets so heavy

it weeps

 

and the children dance

and lovers kiss

and the flowers bloom

 

listen,

we dance and cuddle and bloom

to the sound

of longing and despair

 

it sounds like drums

beating at a constant rhythm

it sounds like thunder,

bellowing triumphant,

not unlike hope

not unlike love
