A Shooting Star

Is it real or is it magic This streak across the sky Is its just for our delight If so, I must wonder why Is there a hidden world Far beyond our mortal eyes The shooting star a symbol That it can be beautiful to die

    I didnt say that I have an idea, Barbara. I said that I like the idea of collecting dry leaves to listen to their sound. Have a great day. Ruben.

    We should be thankful that our atmosphere burns up the vast majority of these rocks falling from space. If not, then the surface of our planet would look very much like that of the moon. Good write Barbara.
