Today morning I had to get up early to take my dog Skooby out as he was restless. It was crisp and cold outside, about 50 F. As I went out, I realized that though it was 6 AM, it was pitch dark. The sky was clear and stars were burning bright. As I looked up to the sky, a feeling of loneliness, a feeling of insignificance swept over me. I was sort of happy and sad at the same time. Happy to see the vast, wide expanse of the starlit sky and sad at the thought of how insignificant we are compared to the universe.
During the course of the day, the thought stayed in my mind off and on. I did not have much time to dwell on that due to work load. As I sat down to write my weekly post for Write Anything Wednesday now, I was again reminded about the dark, wide expanse of the sky.
So here I am. I did not have to look far and wide for the starting word of my poem for week thirty six of my fifty two weeks journey with the letter “W”. Like the stars in the sky, the word was twinkling in my mind. Let me go and explore the wide universe. Maybe I will be able to write a poem wide enough to encompass all my readers.
