Planet Poem (no title yet)

by BlueJay   Jun 27, 2017

What if life as a human really began with each of us
blowing as a gust of wind on Mercury -
before becoming bacteria on Venus,
then humans here on Earth.

Wouldn't that mean that death here's not really
the end of anything at all, it's just the first step
to our journey as Martians atop the red planet.

And even though that's the end of time in another,
very different body, that's not the end yet either.
Cause after that we go on to become storms on Jupiter,
the very ancestors of Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy
or earthquakes in beautiful places. Then we hula hoop
the rings of Saturn as if we are Star ballerinas and actresses.

On Uranus we course through unexplored,
nameless oceans before becoming Neptune's tears
and Pluto's goodbyes. But even that is not where
Time himself fades away because there's still

so many millions of miles
left in space for us
to explore and enjoy.

    On reading this I was knocked sideways.

    This is a wonderfully thought out piece and so outside the box, with such intense graphic images. In fact not so much outside the box, but off our little globe and way way beyond.

    This has to be one of the most awe inspiring things I've read in recent times. So much so that I had to re-evaluate my choices on this week's contest.
