How To Find A Shooting Star

stars that govern the night

span the sky with abundant light

some are bright, some dimmer

the brightest are not always bigger

secrets they hold provoke wonder and hope

could they ever agree?

the dimmer not always further from me

among the illusion and confusion

keep your eye on that one star

follow it through the maze

keep your interest

nurture it

and focus your gaze

study it and before you realize

time will pass enough

to eventuate a sweet surprise

a faint, quick, sharp

tear in the sky

keep it in your thoughts

and make it yours

by Maria Grujicic, artist name Malena

Today my husband and I went to see the planes at the nearby runway. It is a favorite pass time for him, and I adore sunsets. And upon our venture I noticed something very special, and I filmed it.

As a girl, growing up in Darwin I loved to cloud watch and make out the shapes in the sky. I used my imagination to make out what the figures might be and observed how they changed.

I am experimenting with the technology I have at hand. You tube is great and I’m learning all I can. At the moment I can’t add audio to my film, but I can add music as provided by Youtube. This is a beautiful piece, and I added my audio separately as an MP3 file. The poem is longer than the  footage. Please press play on the audio first and then the film and they should then finish together. How timely!

My dearest Vladi, I dedicate this poem to you.
Thank you for listening!
