We are at a far-flung end of the universe and in the middle at the same time.

Beth, I love to watch the stars as they travel in the black of night.
Thanks for stopping by.

Melanie, I love it! There are thousands of those 'incadescent' lights out there.
I finally stopped laying on my back watching. I would watch for shooting star displays on nights when they were predicted to occur.
Out in West Texas that was such a peaceful thing to do and the stars were super bright.

Beautifully evocative of clear skies and spectacular stars. Eyes wide - a vibrant vision.

There is bliss in witnessing "eyes wide." This haiku evokes that bliss. Thank you for making it.
