Good Night Moon – Marilyn Rea Beyer

Yes, it was a Good Night.
Moon was full and golden
as the heat on the beach at
noon. Exhausted from the day,
I rode the train to a place where
soon stories would arrive and
people would tell them, ones I hadn’t
known. We’d listened and laughed
and were moved, quickening the fresh
boon of new friendship when
we find we share the very same
Moon. Night? Good.
Yes, it was.
