Stargazer

Post by flyawaybefree » Thu Sep 09, 2010 2:39 pm

Avoiding my homework, I lie on the grassy ground, peacefully gazing up at the myriad stars. The air is warm, with the slightest cool breeze that brushes across my face as I admire their formations and twinkling beauty.

I remember fondly when I was a child and my father had pointed out constellations to me.

I relax and whisper them softly to myself.

"Orion

The Big Dipper

Pisces

Sagittarius

Draco"

Is there life out there, I wonder. Somewhere beyond those beautiful glassy orbs? Beyond our planet, our galaxy?

I twitch my green antennae before returning inside.
