Shooting Star



How I wish some sayings are true

 ”WHEN YOU WISH UPON A STAR YOUR WISH WILL COME TRUE”
  
"Shooting Star" | Oil on canvas. [10" x 14"]

When I was in grade school, 4th grade to be exact, my teacher asked some students to report about heavenly bodies. Unfortunately, I’m one of them. But then I gladly accepted the offer. Not to mention that that was my first time to do some reporting in front of the class. I also wanted to see if I can pull it off.

The actual encyclopedia we used years ago
On my way home, all I think about is my topic. How do I deliver it in front of my classmates when I know nothing much about comets? Yes, my topic is about comet that happened to be my most unforgettable topic. Before the day ended, I asked my mom to help me out regarding my report. Then she went straight to our bookshelf to get an encyclopedia. Then we started reading it. I learned so much about comets; its parts, movement, speed, and how it shines brightly in the sky. I was amazed, as if everyone in the world is looking up to the arrival of that one little comet in the sky, like a shooting star! And she continued reading it. The book mentioned that the next comet will appear on 2061, and the world will be able to see it for a couple of seconds, like once in a life time moment!  So I computed what would be my age by that time. I got shivers! I told my mom with overflowing excitement that WE HAVE TO SEE THAT COMET! WE HAVE TO! WE MUST! But I didn’t get any reply, not a single word from her.


Silence struck.

I was suddenly stunned for a second. Then the moment I snapped out of it, I started calculating again. I looked at my mom, seriously writing my report.





2061: I’m already 70 years of age.
and my mom…





When I wish upon a star,







I wish…

  6. Woohoo. Naalala ko dati yung pagbabasa ko tungkol sa mga constellations.

    Maybe life is measured by numbers, but the presence of a person never fades. Just like a star, no matter how far it may be, it always shines and sheds its light every single night. :D

    Ang kyot pala ni CC!

  8. Na sad naman ako:(
    Sa sobrang love ko sa anak ko, minsan napag uusapan namin ang future niya, kung saan siya mag aaral ng college ganyan. Sabi ko sa mAnila, sasama daw ba kami ng papa niya, sagot ko hindi na ah pra matuto ka sa buhay. Kapag nag asawa daw ba siya at nagkaanak nandun din daw ba kami, sabi ko oo naman.
    Kapag matanda na daw siya nandun pa din daw ba kami, diko rin masagot.
    Nakakasad no, gusto natin forever pero di nmn possible.
    Hayzzz...
    Uy thank u pla sa pagbisita sa munting blog ko ha at sa pag iwan ng comment. Tama ka mahal ang gas:)

  12. Binalikan ko uli ang post na ito... Aminin na natin, wish ng mga anak ang wish na ito... Lifetime is not enough to give back what our parents on their sacrifices...

    Ang pinakagusto ko sa post na ito ay tagos siya sa puso. Unexpected ang ending at 'pag ninamnam mo ang pinanghugutang emosyon at pagmamahal to come up with this kind of post, grabe lang. Simple pero rock! Hindi kailangang mahaba para maiparating sa mga gaya naming mambabasa ang intensyon.

    I want to see more of this from you Pao!

    Thanks for this great post!
