The Night Sky

Hey all! I’m back with my next set of tankas, titled “The Night Sky”. Enjoy!

I suspect a wink
From stars radiating light,
I suspect a smile
From the bright,shimmering moon,
As I admire the night sky.

I suspect a glare
From a travelling comet,
I suspect a snarl
From a raging asteroid,
As I admire the night sky.

I suspect a stare
From an observing Venus,
I suspect I glanced
A distant constellation
As I admire the night sky.
