Eyes Wide Open

Eyes Wide Open

imagination
stars brought to life on the page
mentors to a child

Isaac, Arthur, Ray
open the eyes of a child
hope found in the stars

guides in a child’s eyes
Asimov, Bradbury, Clark
captains of the stars

This haiku series is my response to RonovanWrites Weekly Haiku Prompt Challenge #82, with the two word prompts of star and child.

Upon reading Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury and Arthur C. Clark as I became a teenager in the mid-sixties, I came to see the stars in a whole new light.
