Friday Fictioneers – Under The Milky Way Tonight

(Author’s note: Working hard on adjusting my schedule and getting rid of distractions in order to do better work. Also working on plans to put some of these stories on video, like Youtube or Vimeo. We’ll see what happens. Here’s today’s fictioneers, with a bit of The Church involved.)

Under The Milky Way Tonight

by Miles H. Rost

“All these stars, all this world,” Marina sighed in wonder.

“Takes a lot of work to hang all these up in a picture.”

She looked at Jeramiha, her astronomy partner, and smiled.

“Can you believe that we’re able to gaze up there and see all these different messy stars from ancient times?”

“I can, Marina. Though I prefer to look at the stars through the lens of a photographer. Capturing a perfect moment takes a lot of ingredients.”

“Starlight, alone time, crowd distance, and a nice camping setup?”

Jeramiha looked into Marina’s eyes, and smiled.

“Under the milky way tonight.”

    • Science and Art are closely intertwined. It’s a shame that some folk in both communities cannot seem to reconcile them. And add love to the equation, and it all goes into the soup. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Jeremiha must be very attracted by Marina to allow himself to be distracted from his photography. Most people who interrupted him would have received short shrift I feel sure!

  2. This reminds me of a number of trips off the beaten track and looking up at the stars mesmoried by that magical night sky. I have some campers out looking at the stars in my flash, who got more than they bargained for.
