A star or a meteor

That day a star or a meteor illuminated the sky before arriving and passing high above us. It soon had second thoughts, returned and stopped right above our heads, blinding us. The end of life on earth in seconds. I was, just like you, immobilized at once. So elementary you said before I lost you. And so elementary, I never did. This moment is what time cracks, disturbs, especially in the spring when it keeps its serenity, its humming just below that of the bees. An inside everything.
