The World a Place to Play

Some moms may not want to read this poem to their kids, because of the first line. But relax! They’re just being kids, and we could sure learn a thing or two from them on this one.

Alone They Travel

space-rock

Rocks in space tumble and hurtle, silent,
Faster than the speed of absent sound,
Alone they travel, suns and planets cold
In distant light devoid of heat or life.
What route they follow, what unseen forces bend
Their path, no signs or arrows point their way,
This mindless flight with nothing fore or aft,
Adrift in darkness, doomed to loneliness.
