I read online that tonight
there is a meteor shower
but the city lights
make it impossible to view
so I sit quietly in my room
turn off the television
and listen for the shouts
of cosmic joy
as the shooting stars
streak across the sky


  1. Isn't amazing that everything in God's universe is so ordered that for over 2000 years(that's right, they were first noticed during Christ's physical presence on Earth) at almost the exact same time period in July and August we have passed through the debris trail of a comet that has a 130 year orbit. Although I always thought they reached a crescendo around August 10th because that was my first real date with your Mom (Steve McQueen's version of The Thomas Crown Affair)! ;-)...didn't really notice "St. Lawrence's tears" much before then. ;-) Think I'll stay up late and wander out to my "planetarium" and count a few of them again tonight...they last a lot longer daisy petals!

  2. LOVE this! And hopefully by the next time we pass through that magic dust we'll be somewhere we can hear, and SEE, the cosmic joy :)
