Anyone see the Geminids this morning? This poem is from a few years ago when the sky was clear. Cloudy this year but still saw them shooting around, faintly, a few minutes ago!

Saw a fireball

Geminid meteor

Smashing through

The Eastern sky

Lasering Orion’s knife

Brightening the dullness of life

As the clouds cleared

And the breeze blew

Separating the trees

So I could see

Celestial beauty

In my backyard…
