Grateful for really powerful telescopes and astrophysics.
Glad to see I'm not the only downer here.*
I so love this first line,
"We must sometimes see the world
as the pale blue dot "
I know this need for distance even though I rarely achieve it.
I like this form you've been working with. Good image of isolation. Good poem.
Up up and awaaaaaaaaaay... *
now there's a punch in the ribs of a last line. Mighty stuff
Best author's note ever.
Ain't it the truth. *
I think it's almost stronger without the final couplet. I'm sure I'm in the minority, though. Great lines!*
Thank you all for your generous responses.
