Critical mission?

Leave a comment

by Lawrence J. J. Leonard

The horizon moved.
We are now in position.
Align the system!

A trajectory
toward the sun and back home
does lift our spirits.

Purposeful digits
direct the pressurized dome
to react and flee.

Families? Missed’em.
But our current condition.
is not yet improved.

Each journey upward
assures that we are apart.
Critical mission?

This new edition
should not have been on the chart.
A last step forward.

We long to be home . . .
