COLLEEN’S 2020 WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 196, #THEMEPROMPT

My father introduced me to the constellations as a child.  We would first look for the milky way and then start finding the summer constellations.  Of all my siblings I was the only one really interested.  Even with meteor showers, one by one my sisters would slip into the house until I was alone with the heavens, stars and my thoughts. This is still one of my favorite things to do.

Milky Way, Universe, Perseids, Cosmos, Stars, Nature

night sky so clear
I see my childhood
through father’s eyes

~~~~~~~~~~~

alone in the dark
watching the Perseids shower
all night thoughts blazing
