Shooting Star

shooting star












I almost missed it,
that night sky flash
gone in the blink of an eye.
That’s the way with shooting stars;
they’re acts of serendipity.

Like a yellow leaf veined in red lying in my path
Or the breath of challah’s rising aroma as I walk by Becker’s Bakery
Or the crack of breaking pasta before it’s dropped in steaming water

Windfall marvels, fleeting gifts
so easy to be missed
