Below a Douglas Fir

Below a Douglas Fir tree one beautiful moonlit night I sat there with my Missy as we viewed a lovely sight The aurora borealis was lighting up the sky Then something to my right suddenly caught my eye A gem from outer space tore across the cobalt blue Leaving behind a trail a quite spectacular view Two in trapped capture witnessing a shooting star We wonder where it came from, out there from afar We sat there for ages chatting about the sight we seen Phenomena such as this are generally seen in dreams Below the Douglas Fir tree that beautiful moonlit night We marvelled at it's arrival as it disappears from sight

    Perhaps it was a falling star, James. They're supposed to be signs of luck for lovers who see them together. Captivating poem. Love, Carolyn

    Not too many times do we see these split second happenings...August was suppose to be the month in the northern sky from ten P.M. until around 2 A.M. to see a show of shooting stars from a comet or maybe it was called meteorites ...I do know for sure what it was called but it was from a comet...I went out several times and looked North but not such luck as to happen to see it..Enjoyed reading about your experience or of a picture that you have seen..Sara
