To the Stars

to-the-stars-a-poem

she was born

3.5 billion years ago

across the ages

she grew and matured

slowly

slowly

in fits and starts

the sun kept her warm

yet she was alone

there was nowhere to go

she yearned for the stars

light years away

time and distance not a concern

she waited

and evolved

and now

she reaches for the stars

A very nice poem of how our earth has grown and matured. Liked the comparison as a flower or plant that has grown.Yes, all we have to do now is explore the stars.Blessings. whonu
