Scintillating stars
Sparkle in the midnight sky
Giving proof of God

    Like a diamond in the sky
    How I wonder what they are?!
    Up above the world so high

    You have a charming haiku in your entry today. But was unable to open it via the linky at The Haiku Challenge. Typed your blog url and made my way here. Probably something is amiss.

    I like your haiku and the picture you chose to go with it! Beautiful! Thanks for visiting my blog and for your thoughtful (and at times amusing!) comments!

    • Mike Patrick says:

      I hope my “amusing” comments have never crossed over the line. I tend to pop off with the first thing that enters my mind, and cops tend to have a strange (or weird) sense of humor.

  7. Jingle says:

    the imagery makes me smile…

    love it very much!
    😉

  8. The haiku reads well.
    But look at the image closely – the stars are on top of the tree branches from the observer’s pov. ‘Tis a computer overlay.

    • Mike Patrick says:

      You caught me. I knew your photographer’s eye would catch that. It is an overlay, but it was the only one I could find on Flickr that showed anything close to scintillating.

  9. Another great haiku that reaches to the skies. Well done, Mike.

  10. Blessings to you this is a wonderful Haiku

  11. God’s trimmings to the night 🙂 lovely!
