|“A flash sparked across the sky.”
First line provided by speakeasy #99 winner Suzanne
A flash sparked across the sky, brighter than all the stars.
Quickly my eyes became fixated on that spot in the dark heavens.
Seemed like an eternity I stared into the black depths of the universe.
Watching, patiently waiting, hoping, another light would materialize.
Fearful of turning my gaze away, afraid to miss something unknown.
Growing weary and disinterested, I started to peek away from blackness.
Just as my glare was moving toward other stars twinkling in their glory,
another burst of wondrous glimmer fell from above rapidly, and was gone.
In the corner of my vision, I caught a glance of another glow, and again.
Dropping my fatigued body into a chair outside, I felt a moment of hope.
Looking up into the night, a cool breeze on my face, I felt a inner peace.
The harmony that eluded me daily, reunited with my jaded soul.
A smile formed across my face as I examined a glorious meteor shower.
