Perseids Power

lying on a dock, 
in the middle of the river, 
listening to the raccoons, crickets and frogs, 
i watched
those grains of sand
shoot across the sky
fast enough to burn bright
and create celestial light


  1. Lovely. Wish we'd been able to see through the clouds.

  2. I waited until 1:30 pm for the skies to clear. Took about 30 minutes for my eyes to adjust so I have about 45 minutes of star gazing before the clouds rolled. You'll still be able to see them until Thursday evening!
