Perseids (my poem)

I wrote this on the 13th of August but could not publish it earlier due to lack of electricity at home.

The shower of the Perseids
luminates the midnight sky
Do meteors ever dream
of alighting the night of another?

My poetry is but an attempt to record feelings. All poems are written in one go. I do not tend to their aesthetic appeal, as that requires extra processing which detracts from my truth in the moment.
