A Night with the Stars

One night,
While standing at the terraces,
Drink on hand and thoughts amassed,
I looked up and said a silent prayer:

That I may see the stars
And enjoy their company
On this Saturday evening.

To my surprise,
The clouds parted,
The fog disappeared,
And the shimmer of the Northern Star
Greeted me with eagerness.

The other stars
Appeared afterwards,
Sparkling, blinking beyond lightyears
Happy to heed my humble request.

I took a sip,
Saw my friends nearby enjoy my company
As I do with them,
And raised my head in quiet contemplation:

That God does indeed answers prayers
All in good time,
All in His time.
