This might be my favorite set of yours that I have read! Wonderful!!! I LOVE the big dipper...I've always been fascinated by it. Here's one I wrote about it back in July-

seven stars
pour thoughts of you into
my evening daydreams...

I love the ending. :)

I was very touched, when I read this - and then I came to the last line. In my head there is only the German word for Big Dipper: der Große Wagen. So my first idea was, that she is standing in front of a rollercoaster. Of course the touching feeling was gone then, but looking at the stars oder waiting in a leisure park: I do like this renhai a lot.

Best wishes

Ah Yes,

This one was awesome. I have to agree with those who have posted before me. The ending is great. I think somehow, everyone in the Northern Hemisphere appreciates the power intrigue of the Big dipper. Great imagery. Fantastic poem.
