Looking for Signs

 

Early August

meteorites flash

like spirits

across the navy sky

We watched, waited,

sipped red wine

shared laughing dreams.

She proclaimed:

“if one comes in five seconds

my life will get better.”

Instantly light speared

through darkness

We gasped, hope hanging

We never together

viewed Perseids again.

Her life didn’t improve

but like a meteorite

entering atmosphere

flashed and fragmented.

  1. I think many people have done this…..If such and such happens, then it will mean such and such. A common wish in a wonderful moment…a shooting star. But such a sad ending here.
    Good take on the prompt.
