Winter Solstice Full Moon

I thought about it, a lot;
spending time under the open sky      
  rather than reading about it      
  or, viewing photos after the fact      
     
Yet, it was raining, a deluge    
  had been for days;    
an east coast front      
  jettisoning its way through    
     
I opted to use an umbrella    
  despite the elements --      
  just for a few moments  
regardless of being sick    
     
Glancing up, I knew without doubt    
  as far as the Sun, Moon    
  and Universe were concerned,      
weather was irrelevant;      
     
They were still cavorting stately      
  in regally entwined courses    
  as if nothing of consequence    
was occurring below them      
     
How steadfast they are      
  in their appointed existence    
  despite our various components      
or, perceived hindrances      
     
How soon we inadvertently forget    
in this Unbearable Lightness of Being    
  we are as temporary as a front      
  jettisoning its way through      
     
As if nothing of consequence      
 was occurring above us      
~
