Finishing it, following a “Starry Starry night” prompt by Walt Wojtanik at Poetic Bloomings.

I searched the sky
on that cold December night
looking for meteors or falling stars or bits of celestial sense
For my efforts
I received no recompense
only a skyful of starry tealights
in memory of Newtown’s lost children and grown-ups
who died in the attack.
May their souls rest in peace.
Peace to all on these summery, starlit nights.
