NaPoWriMo Poem #22: Never Return





I did not see Comet West.
It dominated predawn skies
while I rested up
for second grade.
Somehow schoolmates
were awakened to see it
I heard their accounts
and listened with envy.

I did not see Comet McNaught.
A half-hearted attempt
in poor conditions
failed.
It put on a spectacular show
too far away for me to reach
(I told myself).

I have seen
some spectacular comets.
But it’s hard not to regret
opportunities missed
that will never return.
