As children we thrive on imagination, it is healthy and gives bite to life, I wonder if reality takes that joy away.

When I was kid

I would look at the stars

awe at the things

that shot across the night sky,

nothing has change

just names rearranged

its Star Trek and Stargate

with others thrown in.

Planets are viewed

in real time array

and all the imagination

it stays just the same.

I've seen things

that cannot be explained

do not want to call them UFO

but I have seen them all the same.

Perhaps I was infected

many years ago

and I see what I believe

and not what I know.

Maybe the truth is out there

perhaps to shatter dreams

maybe its best left

the awe of the heavens

reality unseen.

I like it. People don't spend enough time star-gazing anymore, especially children. Thanks for the reminder of wonder!
