every child looks up
at the night sky
and marvels,
wonders, and
stares in awe.

they look with Curiosity,
making up stories
about aliens and rockets.

i look up at the sky
and see very much the same.
my mind sees explosions,
nebulae, and
black holes.

i can almost feel the heat,
taste the flame,
and go in a spiral around the stars
as I watch the rocks come together
and join, like a magnificent puzzle.

this book opens every night
and engulfs the world in its story.
the night sky is a limitless source
of Curiosity.

and I
will forever look up
and marvel,
wonder, and
stare in awe.

This is a piece about myself and who I am. My father always used to show me the sky and he inspired me to want to know everything about the world.
