Today’s optional prompt for NaPoWriMo is to write about stars. The first time I was ever gobsmacked staring at the stars was when I went to the Grand Canyon. It was like the sky was decked with loads of diamonds, for lack of a better description.
I remember the nights that I couldn’t sleep
I’d lay awake on my bed in the darkness
Staring at the fluorescent stars on the ceiling
A map of tiny stars arranged in a pattern
Made a pretty picture with a mythological meaning
Beautiful Andromeda honored as a constellation
A lady that was once chained naked and waiting
On a rock by the sea as a sacrifice to Cetus
Protecting the kingdom thru a solitary offering
And saved in time by the Greek hero Perseus
I wondered when I could see this set of stars
Perhaps I might have to travel very far
It’s far too bright to see anything clearly
Whilst living in this super bustling city.
