The Night Sky #tanka

Milky Way above Dennisport

When fears come alive
The immense unknown spreads forth
Wonder fills the mind
From ancient times until now
Distant stars fill us with awe

This was written for Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge. This week we were given a theme, The Night Sky. I chose to do a tanka using the theme, and also titled my poem with the theme :)

          Spend some time in the mountains – almost always crystal clear skies. Ironically, this photo was taken in the middle of a town near the ocean. I think since there were no lights on the ocean I was able to get a clear view with little light pollution.
