Small stone and the sky

Meteor Crater---
small stone...high speed...big hole

Inspiration for today's small stone...
when I went on a trip to California,
Az. and New Mexico
with my sister a few years back,
we visited this meteor crater.
This morning,
while it was still so dark outside,
I began thinking about the black nights
out in the desert.
 When you are far enough
away from the city
all you see are stars.

dark obsidian sky
broken only by
a handful of
dotted with twinkle

Savor the Day!

After my own heart -- the night sky.

Beautiful photo, I can see why it would inspire your small stone of words. There is nothing more beautiful than a night sky with no lights to mar its beauty.
