Flight

image

I saw a shooting star fly by.  
   Then another
     and another.
       For a moment
         I flew with them
as another diamond
in the sky.

Then I fell an eternity
    down
       down
         returned to
           the seat of   
             my car,
its headlights piercing the black night
ahead.
