Counting Stars


Stars in the sky
I started counting
Lying down on
The terrace
Surrounding light
Caused interference
Fatigue developed
In my eyes
The large building
And the big tree
And the passing clouds
Obscured my view.

Doubts arose
In my mind
How many stars lie
Behind those I counted?
And all those on
Other side of earth?
Can I choose
A clear night?
Can I count for days
Without losing count?
Counting looked clearly
An impossible task.

Astronomers' maps
I saw in the sky
Constellations
In celestial setting
Zodiac signs
Amazing views
Delightful beauty
Of milky way
Bright guidance
Of northern star
Counting in the night
A breathtaking ride.

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
