Earthrise (2)

The thrill of the imagination
Takes us places we can never go
Beyond this earthly home
Out into the solar system
Wrapping our minds around the
Concept of a galaxy in a world far far away
Imagine going into the depths of the earth
“All the way to China,” as we used to say
…Our way of saying very deep
Imagine riding with Voyager
As it continues to sail out into the universe
Beyond our solar system to worlds unknown
Having paid its dues in 2012 sailing on
Singing, “I’ll fly away oh glory, I’ll fly away!”
Who are the imagineers of the present
With visions beyond this realm
Pushing the outer limits in ways yet to be
Not content to live in Earth’s isolation
Rather seeking ways to imagine
The reality of a Star Trek generation
That will stretch our imaginations even more

Great Horned Owl

Charmed Chaos

Juvenile Great Horned Owl on my patio
Mesa, AZ

Shift in
The universe
Change flies in on the wings
Of a Great Horned Owl as he peers
My eyes, a rush of emotion
Escapes into the air
As I honor
This peace

Authors Note: This morning I had an amazing encounter with this Great Horned Owl taking a rest on my patio. Owls have deep spiritual meaning and I am so honored to have had a visit.
