Not at all surprising that what is out there is as fascinating as what is inside; love this one. Great imagination.

Hi Joe, so happy that you enjoyed my poem, I am totally fascinated with space, the moon, and the universe and spend a great deal of time looking up into our beautiful sky. I am about to take delivery of my first telescope (a present from my grandson & his girlfriend) I am so excited... With kindest thoughts Ann xx

Beautiful shape Ann, I was lucky to catch sight of it a few days ago at a silly hour when all normal folk were asleep lol. Hope your break is going well Enjoy your weekend Tom

Fabulous aircraft Ann. Good luck in the contest! I rarely do shape poems; they take one thing I do not have - patience.

Ann, I love your shape poem of the ISS! I can tell how much you love seeing this in the night sky, even scheduling your evening around its appearances. Have you been able to see the comet yet? I've been looking but there is too much city light and cloud cover so far. I'll keep trying! Love your poem and your new artsy avatar too! Your star buddy ~ John

Thank you star buddy it is 2.00 am here and my eyes are shutting down, haha. No sign of the comet but have seen some amazing pictures taken from the ISS ~ check them out from NASA site if you can John. Thanks for your lovely comments John and yes re my new avatar, I thought it time for a change in the style of Warhol ~ glad you like it. Keep those space eyes peeled my friend. With stars in mine from Ann ****
