Evening Sky

Tried to do a night Sky shot, harder than anti...Sailing the night sky
Oceans of luminescence
Drown twinkling stars


Inspired by the prompt at Carpe Diem, this is my take on Alexander Andreyev’s “Evening Sky”.

Alexander’s original:

evening sky —
over the city lights
stars hardly seen
(c) Alexey Andreyev

  1. Indeed.. I have not seen the stars properly in many years.. and I only live close to a city.

  2. Beautifully composed haiku Gene … I am living in a city with a lot of lights, but just … say 10 minutes walking … I am surrounded with complete darkness and can see all those wonderful stars and constellations.

    To think that the stars could be drowned…either a chilling or an inspiring thought (depending upon one’s mood, I suppose).

    Love the metaphor and especially “oceans of luminescence”. Superb haiku!

    Yes, so true, the artificial light does drown the twinkling stars…sadly. So nice to see you again!

  6. You captured Andreyev’s mood, and heightened my own. 😃
