Meteor Showers

Meteor Showers


The year grows late, the season, chill.

Please, meet me by the garden gate   

(after midnight – if you will).


The darkened sky, (light

gone truant, you’ll soon find,

pursuant to a new moon),

will form the perfect backdrop

for the treat I have in mind.

(If I’m late, please wait –

I’ll be there soon.)


La Lune may be lacking, but

the Geminids might join us   

(barring inclement weather).

Mayhap, we’ll all bide ‘til dawn

and shower together.



  1. Meteor showers are so much fun. Your poem captures the anticipation so well!

  2. Thanks, Patricia! Wish I'd seen them. :-]
