On High

Clouds cleared, stars shone bright

Beneath The Plough, just to the right

Tear drop of comet

Smeared on the night

~

n.b. Absolutely beautiful. It is worth waiting up for comet Neowise. An omen? Whatever. It is wondrous.

Universe

When I look up

After the orange half-moon has crept behind the oaks

I see the un-imaginal number of stars

Come to light

And am overawed

Every time

.

Every time

.

Every time

.

If every star

Carries a wish

A prayer

A question

It just shows

How little we know
