    The Glimpse

    Would you take the grand step 'cross the sky
    to stars whose sparkles beckon
    and sever the umbilical cord of gravity,
    be awed by planetary majesty,
    embrace God's endless silvern tapestry
    and escape Earth's pull each second.

    Then step on soil of a distant star,
    first footprint at Heaven's gate.
    For centuries, you pointed to journey there
    to catch that glimpse of God so rare.
    Now your arrow, man made of tensiled gear,
    star leaps the gates of Fate.

    And tho' you're a faint echo of a tiny whisper
    in the thunder of Time called Man,
    a trembling leaf on an outstretched branch,
    a blade of grass on dry land,
    a corner patch on some crazy quilt
    where good and evil reign.
    But Greatest wonder, your relentless search
    to jump the stars in a single lurch,
    to sit on God's cosmic perch
    and view the Earth again !

    To take a step on one of God's steps toward the heavens, what an image. I enjoy your vivid style.
