Blazing star among fields of dreams. Its might binds the denizens of the night.

Yet dim it appears from galaxy’s edge. A speck among many seen.

Just a dream no? But all dreams compel.

Shooting Star

shooting star 1

A shooting star fell from the heavens. Locked away within its core, an immortal spirit dreamt of the world below. The dreams however did not belong to her but to the men, women, and children who bore witness and wished upon the burning effigy. Legends say that if many wishes were one and the cause righteous, she would remember the dream and grant it, trading her immortality and reborn a saint.
