Bronze Star - 5,558 Points (July 12,1952 / New York City)

Star Haiku


Faraway twinkle

in the vastness of Heaven's

invisible scheme


The stars are watching

waiting for the journey's end

angels collect souls


The stars are twinkling

celestial memories

cycle flows and ends


Each orb a vision

radiant amber glows

the stars' twinkling light


Under a twinkling

firmament a starburst streams

radiant asters


Then one falls its tail

trails streaming stardust across

exploding midnight


How far your journey

was to bring such wonderful

awe and excitement


And now you are gone

taking my wishes with you

into forever


The stars are watching

amber ambrosia pours

claiming another soul


The sky is filled with

stellar constellation tales

a brief flash then gone
