When I look at the moon in the daytime,

and the air is cool

and even when it’s not,

I am reminded of our pale blue dot

and of our scientists, engineers, and Astronauts

and of the view they share from way up there.


How insignificant our trifles and our wars

our fears and our hatred – for nothing vile we create among us

truly reflects the brilliance which lives within and surrounds us .
