Black and Bright

After a rain-swept day it is a surprise and delight to find a star-swept night sky. The Milky Way stretches across the heavens with handfuls of bright stars liberally tossed along it's path. Tonight billions and billions of stars are visible in that deep, dark sky. I look up at the brilliant beacons, and my mind magnifies them into the galaxies, gas clouds, and other wonders our mighty telescopes have shown us. What a beautiful universe we live in. I so love living in the country where it is still dark enough to see the endless waves of stars.
