Stories Of Ourselves Meteor

the grasshopper and the cricket. In ‘On the grasshopper and the cricket’, John Keats tries to describe how nature is immortal, he uses nature and visual imagery to paint a two sided picture and depict two stories of how human life intersects with nature on earth. The first and more direct story told by Keats is how in summer, when the ”birds have fainted from the heat of the sun and take shelter under cool leaves”, the grasshopper sings from the meadows and then in winter, when the world is frosted...

A Story

In this very short story, Alice Walker tells of a young, African American girl who, while gathering flowers, stumbles quite literally upon the body of a dead man. The atmosphere, language and subject matter of the story suggest the southern United States as a setting-sometime in the mid- to late-20th century seems an appropriate time period, though this is far less clear.

This activity pattern for random, background sporadic meteors is enhanced at certain times of year by the occurrence of meteor showers. Meteor showers occur at the same time each year, as Earth in its annual orbit around the Sun ploughs through streams of...
