Astronautical Joys


Life in interstellar space will have its perks.



One day the horizon won’t seem so vast,

when we step off the planet of our birth.

In space,

we’ll look ahead into the past

to find a future

never seen on Earth.

The farther out we look

the further back

we see

to the moment of Creation,

and deep within the void,

immersed in black,

the greater is

our illumination.

We will no longer cast a downward gaze –

when weightless,

out’s the only direction –

nor claim there’s too few hours in our days –

length will be a personal selection –

no planetary spin will dictate ours,

when we are journeying among the stars.
