Originally shared three years ago, I thought this poem fit Michael’s prompt “Orbit”, perfectly.

This rock is now my home, a place
I travel on, through outer space

A flight to galaxies, still unknown
Adventures, by myself, alone

Standing in the open air
I see Jupiter, floating there

Watching me, a leery eye
As I go quietly, drifting by

In awe of all the mysteries
On this planet, I can see

Ribbons of waves across, a band
Could I ever walk this land?

Shall I journey far across?
And glide, just like an albatross

In an atmosphere, unconfined
Perhaps, a chance to just unwind

Or should I stay here, bide my time
In this universe, quiet, sublime
