Rocket Science: Isn’t It?

Posted on Posted in Life, Music, piano, prose poem

So slow the glow as the stages and capsule vanish into the eternal night

Higher and farther away than thoughts can carry

Imagination transcends the distance

I’m on the phone now monitoring the ascent: in REAL TIME!

I’m talking to Major Tom…

“Major, some words of encouragement for the crowd. What do you have to say?”

“Always drive with your headlamps fully lit!”

“But Major, any timely words for the multitude?”

“Keep your feet on the floorboards and hands at 10 and 2!”

“Okay, Major. I think I’ve got it now.”

It’s common sense actually. All of it.

After all, it isn’t ROCKET SCIENCE!!!
