Tonight I looked into the night sky and saw infinity. I saw the moment when I was born, and the time my parents fell in love. I gazed upon the day Newton discovered how the stars dance. I saw a time when this planet was born out of the fiery refuse spiraling around a young star. I looked up and saw a continuum of what has been in time, and I wondered if my descendants will look up into that night sky and see light from a star that was created as I looked up at the stars and wondered.
I am in awe. Not an extra word to meet the word count. Not a missing word because it wouldn’t fit.
I’m sorry that I was distracted by the word count. Now, as I reread, I find a story that stands on its own merit, regardless of the word count. What a nice pondering. Thanks for sharing this moment.
Thank you. ;). This was a piece of writing that suprised me as it unfolded. It is gun when that happens. 🙂
