A pocketful

When I was a young girl
after the night became very dark
I will stand on the backyard
look at the sky
and wait for showers of meteors.
I will put one in my pocket
and go to bed.
At breakfast
I had a pocketful of questions.
Some I put on my backpack
and took them to school.

note: One more week before spring. Today is like a very warm spring day,80 degrees and the sky, so blue.
