Leaving Earth


A gleam, a glimmer

reflection of the skies

within the shallow pool

fantastic for its depth


A dream unending

barely known as such

a vast, unsated yearn

to be where that light is


How many good men gone

the way all flesh must go

have seen and dreamed and longed

the pleasing of that hope



atop columns of fire

scant miles short of the goal

ending where tomorrow starts
