J'accuse Apollo

Earth from space: NASA

'I don't know what you could say
about a day in which you have seen four beautiful sunsets.'
John Glenn

I blame Apollo and Gerry Anderson too

for wanting to be an astronaut.

What must it be like

To have the right stuff?

To have the courage

To do the things that must be done

To go to the places that test

Mind, heart, soul: moments - case of stress

Potential spent - kinetic venerability

Cast adrift, burdened wait lifted: sweet release -

Flotsam, jetsam :object: back to Space

The world is suddenly lighter and older

To remind us of who we are and once were

To look after the where, when, who and see the whole

Trying to keep the stars alight at home

The world is full of astronauts

Call them Carers

Above All - they travail alone

Thanks Apollo and Gerry A. wouldn't want it any other way...
