Blue home globe

disk shrinking

speck flickers

and then is gone

still.


Sun's warm light

receding.

Drawn numb flight.

A trace through space

still.


Though I pine

I yield that life yet mine

lends chance for redesign

to turn and face the stars.




Space Travel Backwards

Commentary
Imagine that you are alone on board a space ship which has left Earth and which is never going to return........

Dedicated to Vicious Manju, both of whose parents died within the space of a year.

Earth = Mother?     Sun = Father?



The stars come no closer

but home grows further away

still.


Shards of past

cast from the rip roar blast off

hold me fast

and etch my tightened throat with scars.

  Review
  Thanks for the   beautiful song that   you wrote for me.

        - Vicious Manju
