Star light

Several times this past week, I’ve had  occasion to look at the stars.  It is something I love to do, to just sit and look at the stars and ponder. I can pick out the Big Dipper,  some other constellations and sometimes a planet.  Planets have a different glow, a somewhat different color, (thanks  to what I learned in Astronomy).  I enjoy applying that little bit of knowledge.

I often think, what are other people doing who are looking at the stars? Do they share my wonder?  Perhaps. Perhaps not.  But I know when I can see them, I do wonder in their exquisite beauty.   The stars “put on a show for free”.  (thanks to Joni Mitchell).

A poem I wrote  once, encapsules my thoughts:

    Night descends

 its beauty envelopes

   my soul

The stars twinkle

     I listen.

I hope to keep on listening.DSCN1957 (2)
