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
Afterwards January Prompts – Orbit – Day 19/31
