I Wish

this night’s canopy
needs stop-motion camera–
my first shooting star

  1. Uh oh… you are getting hooked on the sky. I’ve thought about writing more skyku but not too sure if they would reach that many people.

      lol. Skyku, hadn’t heard that one. I just couldn’t remember ever seeing a shooting star, though I’m sure I must have. Felt like I ought to mark the event with a poem, you know.

    Wow. Once again, I just want to pull up a chair and be there!!! Beautiful. You remind me it’s time to lay in the night and look up, look up, look up! Thank You!

    Have a Great One! 🙂

      This is the best time (for where we live) for viewing the night sky. I told my husband we should have a bonfire this Friday, weather permitting. Perhaps we can do both! 😀 You have a great day too.

    I really like all that these few words make me see. I love “night’s canopy.”

    • Yousei Hime says:

      Me too. I had such a boring phrase to start with. I was out feeding our animals when I saw the shooting star. I don’t remember ever seeing one before, though I probably have. I thought, “Definitely a haiku moment.”

If you leave tracks, I'll find you.
