Closer To The Heavens
Four souls are ushered to the heavens
a new shepard guides their journey;
the creator called blue origin is apropos
as they get closer to the heavens
a lifelong dream becomes true
only a 10-minute flight in reality
and a memory that will last centuries.
Amulets are carried for good luck
a piece of canvas from the Wright Flyer, and
a bronze medallion that was made from the first hot air balloon flight in 1783.
A historic day, a successful experiement
a blissful crew.
And the rest of us watch in awe,
hopeful that we also
can get closer to the heavens.
In the meantime,
let’s take care of our precious planet now
let’s be considerate and loving to each other.
