NaBloPoMo#16 SPARKS OF STARS

Sparks of Stars

As I
gaze at the stars
that shape the Milky Way
I wonder if any children
watch, too.

The stars
were bright when I
was young.  They shone like sparks
of fire against a velveteen
black sky.

I wish
little children
could view the great display
along the Milky Way tonight.
It’s cool!

    I have memories of finding the Milky Way and the Big and Little Dippers. Now the glare of urban sprawl makes that harder. Nice little poem.

    I remember the stars being much brighter and more plentiful when I was a child than they are now days.
