Last Night

I laid out on my porch last night
Listening to coyotes rage a fight
I watched the moon with her bright, full face
Place a blanket of shadows o’er the landscape

Tree frogs croaked a lullaby
I saw night critters scamper by
I breathed in the cool, fresh night air
As my body gave up its daytime cares

Inside the house everyone was asleep
After praying the Lord their souls to keep
I simply marveled at this nighttime world
Watching Mother Nature play like a little girl

Stars were twinkling in the midnight sky
Even saw a satellite passing by
My mind was clear of whos, whats, whens and whys
The tear that fell was from a happy cry

I laid out on my porch last night
Refueling my soul for the coming light

    good poem, by the way. it is calm and peaceful itself. the details (such as "Stars were twinkling" and "I watched the moon with her bright, full face") are descriptive and paint a beautiful picture.

    Sometimes thats what it takes: refueling... peace... calm... to heal from yesterday, sort out today, and prepare for tomorrow.
