Inside the Dipper and the Inch to Polaris

Constellations

On a carpet of tall grass floating
I extend my arm and measure
the minute intervals with finger-span
and am amazed at the size of the Earth,
how gigantic I am in this compact universe.
The night sky constricts like last year’s tee shirt.

Next month I’ll have chocolate cake,
turn five,
and start Kindergarten.

The NaPoWriMo prompt for today is space.  Specifically, a small space.
