Wow! Congratulations on your placement in Brian's contest, Tom. Just shows how sparkling a two-liner this is, as Brian is predisposed to longer poems, methinks. Congrats!! Way to go! :) Gershon

Thank you very much Krish, Sadly today light pollution spoils the view for many. When I was younger I used to go to Ireland in the countryside and the sky was like black velvet and I'll always remember that view like God had thrown a handful of diamonds across the sky. Tom
