Milky Way

Milky Way (Photo credit: Wikipedia)


Moon, having fallen
Bows to the bright Milky Way
Bridging horizons

A Common Connection

Opposite, indeed
As if winter and summer
Joined, for a season

Going on Faith

As nature eludes
The faithful chances the leap
Spanning the unknown

Written for Haiku Heights #247, I decided to add an extra challenge to their “Bridge” prompt.  I refused to write about a physical bridge.  I’m glad I did as the results felt good when they came out.

I couldn’t resist a poem about the stars as I simply love astronomy and stargazing.  So many times, I’ve been fortunate to see the stars bridge the horizons.  In my second poem, I added a double meaning that I hope is evident.  And finally I wrote about how I feel that faith is important in our lives to bridge gaps in our understanding.

These were enjoyable to write and hopefully you enjoy reading them.
