I saw a shooting star last night. It was big, bright and had a long tail … I felt like a child again and made a wish.
Fascinating creations. Broken meteors entering the atmosphere have always been coveted for fulfilling desires. Standing in the balcony enjoying the fresh air, I glimpsed it by chancing to look at the gloomy sky … and there it was, streaking past the vast darkness.
The last I saw one I was 10… it feels like ages, I thought I’d never see it again. You might be wondering about my wish … well, it bears likeness to what I wished for when I was a kid and no I won’t tell you what it is.
