#TANKATUESDAY WEEKLY #POETRY #CHALLENGE : POET’S CHOICE #237 @ColleenChesebro #tanka #poetry #poems #nightsky #bluelights #writingcommunity


We have blue lights reflecting off the trees next to the back deck. It’s a spectacular combination of the twinkling stars above and the bugs that fly through the light beams that add to the night show!

This is a picture I took while laying on my lounge chair stargazing. It was the inspiration for the Tanka Poem below.

pine trees against night sky with blue lights on them

encroaching darkness

retreats into the forest

beneath stars soft glow

Brilliant blue beams decorate

my piece of eternal night

    1. Thanks, Mae. Although it doesn’t offer us much sky from this spot, we don’t mind. Can’t wait for the meteor showers soon!

    1. Thank you, Colleen 🙂 It is an amazing spot to just be and look at our small slice of the stars.
      I’m not sure what it’s called, but you plug it in and it has a stake to go into the dirt. It shines out a blue light that looks like little stars in the trees. My husband says it reminds him of Disneyland… lol.
      Yes, we are very lucky to be surrounded by such beauty. xo

  1. I don’t see a lot of bugs at the light but when they fly through the beams it’s glittery or flashy. Yes, the perfect spot to let the words find me 🙂 xo
