*Shooting Star*

Long before our time their light blasting through the sky, I wander why.
Mars, the god of war, had many weapons and bombs and used them for nonstop massacre and torture. His red color represents blood. Blood is spilled in war.
Venus, the goddess of love, used love against war, to try to overcome Mars but, as you know war and love donít mix.
Soon, Mars shot a fiery comet from a bow Ďní arrow. Venus defended with the same weapon. Not to far yonder, the comets grew larger and larger until they collided with shatters of light. Billions of stars shot through the sky.
The gods were touched by this happening and soon made up.
Now we as humans enjoy the site of the shooting stars from the explosion.
