September Heights: Milky Way

our home galaxy–
just this one holds every star
I number tonight

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    Great one Susan, it.s so cool to write about our Galaxy. I contributed this prompt to HH, but I had some difficulties to write about our Milky Way.

    The last line was too good 🙂

  6. Kathy Donlan says:

    I love how you started with the immense vastness and ended with the simplicity of yourself counting stars. Well done!

  7. Patti says:

    I like the last line a lot. It plays perfectly in contrast with the immensity of the galaxy.

  8. Ellecee says:

    Very nice haiku, I like it a lot. The last line is my favourite too.

  9. Barbara says:

    I love how you pulled it together in the last line. Very original take!

  10. poetrydiary says:

    I like the way you personalise this – the last line makes the whole haiku work.

  11. Grace says:

    nicel little contrast with this. it certainly is nice to count when you have a good idea how they got there. if you catch my angle on that.
