Faith ~ Marjorie Maddox


It, too, is a step and a leap;

small, giant;

man and mankind.


It peers up at the moon

and winks

at what got us there,

what keeps us

where we are.


Its breath is the speed of light;

its trajectory the space

of heavens;

its mission to launch

the unexplored, the alien;

to sight the soul that orbits

just out of reach

of human hands.


To finally land.
