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.
