This was very interesting- it makes me wonder where the smoke is coming from? I want to know more... that's good!

sounds like any urban evening, with the skies obscured.... Good one liner.

Thanks so much, Oino. There's something a Tarot author says: "KISS!" Which stands for "Keep it simple, silly!" Less really is more ... OK, OK, I'll stop now. :-)

Ah, Regina Clare Jane, you asked the million dollar question. Sadly, it's the memory of the first night here in NYC after 9/11. The clouds of debris were still hanging in the sky like smoke ... I can normally see the Manhattan skyline from where I live in Queens ... I clung to the sight of that star ...

That is a sad memory. You have written a short but powerful haiku.

Another good city poem! I love the idea of the star over the city.

I really liked this, even before I read what prompted it.

Wow! I liked it before but knowing what the backstory was really added to it's power.

Very strong - both in words and image.

I like that... remind me of home in Texas...after a southern cookout and sitting under the lone star.
