Scene: Shooting Star


[Begin scene]

A cool night, a dark moonless sky…

Lying on a blanket with the heavens in view, each point of light a new world far far away…

An orchestra of crickets and frogs fill the air with music, an occasional accent from a night bird…

Then it happens! A bright streak across the night…

Light burning bright in its final decent, destination irrelevant

A moment in time, a wish to be made.

[End scene]
