Cosmic Evolution

 

On this third planet

our slow wobbly progress

is measured

in stumbling moments of Wow!

Each step

engendered by an unborn child

kicking with unconscious expectation

To thosenow dead

 

who built our cities high up on seven hills

Behold the future!

in one sudden gasp of breath

swaddled once again

into a small rocking cradle

thousands of feet above the Earth

and climbing fast

to finally…finally!

                          

                    walk on the moon
