Dec 2 : wish

December 2 : Verse 2

Yesterday’s opening line and notes might have led us to believe that this poem focusses on the scientific wonders of shooting stars. But the second line quickly swerves away from that!

As fascinating and interesting as it is to read and discover fact based articles (which I often do when developing a poem), my mind always eventually gravitates to certain words which send my thoughts orbiting through space and time.

With thoughts often racing at speeds faster than a shooting star, a steady rhythm usually moves in and when words start to take shape, this rhythm and flow becomes so clear that I often can’t write fast enough for all the words to safely land on paper.

But enough about my writing, let’s take a look at the word selected to focus on today:

What’s often thought of as unattainable, certainly has often been proven as invalid opinions. And as far as what is considered supercilious, well, I’m quite certain that Walt Disney’s lofty goal to turn cartoon drawings into movies was likely the laughingstock of many investors.

All of this reading and writing about the word wish brings me back to yesterday’s word – shooting star. I can’t help but wonder, must it be a shooting star for a wish to be made upon? Or can it be any kind of star?

According to a song written by Leigh Harline, I think it’s understood that anyone can wish on any kind of star.

Listen to the tune while reading an excerpt from the lyrics:

When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you

If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do

Lyrics from disneyclips.com:

Don’t miss the next verse to catch a shooting star that makes it through earth’s atmosphere – but where will it land?
