Best Wishes


Do you remember still the falling stars
that like swift horses through the heavens raced
and suddenly leaped across the hurdles
of our wishes--do you recall? And we
did make so many! For there were countless numbers
of stars: each time we looked above we were
astounded by the swiftness of their daring play'
while in our hearts we felt safe and secure
watching these brilliant bodies disintegrate,
knowing somehow we had survived their fall.


Falling Stars by Rainer Maria Rilke

The Perseid meteor  shower is this weekend, I hope you have clear skies for viewing and at least a few of your wishes do come true.

xoxo Ro
