haiku series 19.9.18

clear autumn night

folding ribbons of stars in

infinite darkness


how vast the night sky

on the edge of a galaxy

I feel so small


poems, words

spill from an ocean of



gazing into space

a splat drops onto my page

an avian poem?

  1. wow – I really love this series Janice!

    each haiku holds its own and offers such a wonderful “breath” or “insight” – and then read together, combined, they tell this great story …. very well done! clearly the “gift” from the stars/muse was with you for this 🙂
