Meteor Shower / Poem by Christine Tabaka

Poem by Christine Tabaka
Meteor Shower
A wish flashes across the sky,
trailed by blinding glory.
Eyes closed, breaths held,
it vanishes in a flash.
Hearts race across the moon
in buoyant anticipation.
Hope beyond hope
a granting of desire.
A flicker of childhood
held in ancient folklore,
unlocking forgotten joy,
a single blaze of light.
Believing, not believing,
we never abandon
the wonder in a moment,
wishing on a star.
