Our Galaxy

after rain

(with scattered meteors 

        dark as cracking tar)

     our drive contains the Milky Way

ruptured pearl
        and snickered light

     draw my eye

  is this our galaxy?

a  jeweled pot hole

             in the bitumen of space.

      1. With the prompts on sites like dVerse I find if I read other people’s responses first I become paralysed and can’t write my own. So like with that, my take on the milky way will have to wait now :D.
        We have a very dark sky here, with the skyglow of Canberra off the the south west. So it really is milky.
