    Carrie, I love everything about this haiku – the picture, each perfectly chosen word and especially the secret wishes! Many’s the night I’ve camped out beneath a wide, dark sky to watch in wonder. Thanks for bringing it all back!

    Just the idea of making a secret wish to a shooting star is magical Carrie and your haiku was just that. Beautiful words.

    Hi Carrie – You are quite welcome! It is my pleasure to volunteer and revive script into your poetry. As you said above to Avatar Linda Rock – “I think we all need a little magic” – and the shooting star reference is magical. Also since my passion is handwriting, I found this historical video which I thought you and Avatar Andrew Carter might enjoy:

    A wonder-filled haiku, Carrie. Shooting stars are fascinating phenomena. I like how you’ve kept it in present tense and the title prompted research to find it comes from the Greek’ Perseus. Amazingly, the Perseid cloud’s particles are one thousand years old. Best wishes ?
