How to Take a Meteor Shower
towel optional
First, flatten your back to the Earth,
and stare ever upward, still and constant.
All peripheral view will soon disappear.
Eyes falling forth, upon the night sky,
the heart pitches forward by free will.
The body falls away and the mind dives,
landing face-first across a black sea
where every meteor is a speeding boat.

To and fro! Fantastic description of a meteor shower. Love the visuals, the imagery, and best of all what I felt inside.
