I have stood on the surface of Mars

Posted on October 14, 2016

I have stood on the surface of Mars
and seen, high in the sky, at sunset
a tiny star, bright but small
reminding me, in all its pale blue fragility
of the smallness of Man.
We are dreamers, you and I,
fellow travelers, for a while
puzzling out, musingly,
the greatest quest ever conceived.
I love Life, and the gift
given to us, short-lived creatures,
to ponder the vast Universe.
Never mourn the passing of our lives

celebrate that it happened.

F.M.
