A Wish I Once Made (Shooting Star)

 

A wish I once made zipped past me with brilliance.

I did not see it clearly, but its flash lashed onto

My memory and wouldn’t let go.  It was the

Bright yellow and heart-wrenching violet

Of a roiling sky brought to life by

Heaven and set in relief against the

Sea. It was what I wanted, but it

Broke my heart to see it fall so

From the sky and fizzle out

Into a streak of

Ephemeral

Instant

Memory

Brilliance.
