skywatching


Evenings glow like burning love letter. The sky burnished with stars peeping through the torn clouds.

I wish this town would host a circus! That one circus, that makes you want to run away with them.

Chocolate-stained cheeks and lost coat buttons, letters half-written, notes passed around and hurriedly stuffed into school satchels. The fallen leaves pressed in notebooks. The cartoons and the phone numbers on the back covers! 

Nothing, lasts forever, right?

What if this planet really is flat? But, all of us have been really really  lazy to venture out far and wide, so we decided it’s round. For us to comfortably say, what’s the point, right? Maybe, we would never know.

Ursa Major, Monoceros, Draco, Pegasus, Centaurus, Eridanus, Ophiuchus, Hydra, Orion, Scorpius, Perseus, Andromeda... Neighborhood! Can I come back, please? Pretty, please!
