I love this comet. Did you know that Mark Twain was born under it and he predicted the next time it came around, which is only like every 70 or 80 years, he would DID with it. And guess what? He actually died when it came through again!!!

This haiku paints a vivid image of the heavens, Rick. Great job, mate. I love space/cosmic themes in poems. I'm a sci-fi guy. Ty for sharing a real good one here. Love you, bruh.

Nicely crafted. There is so much mystery in space as well, enough inspiration to last a lifetime.

"In the celestial world, Shining bright above" Hello Rick, very powerful yet simple image in your haiku. Had read over it a few times, in complete shock.
