Fallen Star

I've watched the rain, the falling stars rain, this Saturday morning.
I didn't make a wish.
Not done - why ask when you have all you need ?
And besides, wishing to a falling subject ?

I focussed on one particular star.
Followed it comin' down - it seemed to be a star I had known years ago for quite a while.
With a spectacular speed it came down.
It shouted  &  at the exact same moment I yelled too.

'Watch out !'
'Look out !'
At a similar tiny little dot in time: an enormous, gigantic flashlight illuminated the sky.
Then a deep silence...all starlight rain had disappeared.

Today, I stared into the flame of a candle - and mumbled a wish.
From far away I heard the whispering of the fallen star.
