Twinkle Twinkle Little Star â­ď¸â­ď¸đŸŒŒ


Well done, you are a star!!

Many of us have heard this compliment at least once in our lifetime. Have you ever thought, why Star, why not Sun or Moon?

I don’t know either.

But, one thing I know, starlit nights are beautiful to watch.

I haven’t seen stars in the sky for a long while, not that I stargaze every night. A few days ago, I had the same thought in my mind, why do I not see any stars anymore.

We could blame light pollution these days; it has made it impossible to see the Milky Way glowing above us.

This evening, I didn’t turn on the living room lights as I was eager to put on the fairy lights I hung on the curtain rod of the French doors leading to our back garden.

😍

It started getting dark; I turned on and off the new lights I hung, enjoying what I was doing.

At one point, my focus was distracted to the night sky. I reckoned I saw a star; then, I thought it was my illusion. Just out of curiosity, I turned all the lights off in the house and went out in the back garden.

That was incredible, just beyond words. I saw a beautiful sky with twinkling stars scattered in an unknown impressive pattern.

It excited me; a teardrop slipped through the corner of my eye as I blinked; I don’t know why. Probably, it reminded me of a part of my childhood that believed stars were magical. Or, did it remind me of something else? Nevermind.

Much love ❤️
