Egrets Reading

Meteors

Today a haiku of mine about the Orionid meteor shower is the haiku of the day at Tinywords.com.

The Orionids were actually last month but there are meteors tonight and tomorrow night - the Leonids. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like I'm going to be able to fit in a meteor viewing excursion this weekend. (A Los Angeles resident needs to drive to the desert or up Angeles Crest Highway to see much in the night sky due to light pollution.)
