Meteors

Minutes ago,
I saw
flashes of light
falling across the sky.

As I watched,
more stars 
appeared in
that sky.

The red and blue
quickly-moving 
lights
were planes.

I watched
with my sisters
as more
meteors
fell.

I can hardly
describe what
I was
feeling.

Glee?
Invigoration?
Astonishment?

I don't know.

The stars hold my answer,
and they will not tell it.
