Stars

curious shapes
against the dark summer night –
a traveler's respite

look at the stars above
dream till you land in the sky...
none too far to reach

  4. Good one ~ If I may suggest a slight tweaking on the first one:

    curious shapes

    1. Thanks for the suggestion, Grace! I appreciate it!

      I had considered the same earlier but didn't want to go with the colon; I changed the last line to the above then. :D

      Hope you have a great weekend! :)

  7. 'beauty unmatched' - the night sky with its ever-shifting lights is inspirational - has one thinking soaring thoughts

  8. Yes, if only it can happen all the time! Dreams have a way to be realized if pursued well and long enough! Wise words, Vaishali!
