HEY THERE!

Hey there! Are you
curious who we are
and why we send
probes between (un)known worlds?

These little steps make
us proud that we
can mark out (in)significant
presence high above Earth

You may wonder what
kind of life we
represent, but possibly you've
already gathered some knowledge

Maybe you've also heard
a golden plate being
attached to an aged
messenger dispatched long ago

Meanwhile, we're sharpening
our sight and hearing
(re)drawing ambitious plans to
push cosmos conquest further

We want to reach
places never visited before
forgetting in this quest
you were once here…*

Thank you, Andee! Indeed, space is both stunning and terrifying place. A lot should be discovered yet. Even more, should be never found.

Loved your poem, Mirek!  Personally, I feel mankind has no real significance in the universe as it will exist with or without us. Space is truly "Pandora's Box."
