30-2

Toes
dug into
the cooling sand,

heads
thrown back,
we gazed at

the
limitless pinpoint
stars above. "I've

never
seen one
fall," she confessed.

We
sat, astonished,
in the darkness.

Perfect!
Just moments before I read this post I was watching the eclipse and was delighted to see a falling star.
