I dreamed I saw shooting stars last night...
Many of them - and there was someone I was trying to get to look.
A heavy scattering - everytime I looked, another one, another two - of the usual ones, the little star-like dots of light that scoot across the sky for a bit then vanish...
And at least two, as I recall, of the kind you really remember.
In my life I have seen two seriously vivid shooting stars, and in the meteor shower last winter, a number that were at least more than the "speck of light" version.
Last night, in my sleep, I saw two more... of the kind that seem to have a width, a dimension, a size... that cross the sky brightly, in a trail that has perceptible color, and the leading point glows with an orange or yellow fire.
The second of these actually visibly exploded at the end of its course...
