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
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!
