A View from My Early Morning Commute

My train rushes by
Streetlights below glare upward
It’s light pollution


Thanks Everyone for Giving Me My Moon Back

Young waxing Moon on August 23rd, 2017.

Eclipse forgotten
No crowds, no press, no bother
It’s my Moon again

An Astronomer Laments Smartphone Zombies

They always look down
Too engrossed in their small worlds
They never look up

Summary of My Stargazing Nights Most of This Week


Telescope goes out
Sudden clouds herald more rain
Telescope comes in


Lonely Venus


When dusk murk enshrouds
Sentinel Venus remains
But nobody sees


A Despondent Stargazer’s Haiku


Chill winds lure gray clouds
Sad rain kindles my despair
No stars shine tonight
