Lovely poem and image to start the year.Happy New Year, Geo.
Lovely Arleen, thank you. Happiness to you too!
This poem and picture and title are so perfect together I almost don't believe it. It's beautiful.
Most kind. We owe much to the establishment of international space stations.
I love the way the sentences overlap. I am sure there is a technical term for it in poetry but I don't know what it is. And a Happy New Year to you !
Thank you Jenny. I think the term is "enjambment" --but not sure. Best wishes!
I just love the format you used here, Geo. That picture is more astounding with the bigger click!
Truly an astounding picture, taken in 2003 and dedicated by NASA to Yuri Gagarin --the first human to have seen the world from such a vantage.
I have absolutely no desire to go into outer space but I would dearly love to see a view like this.
Same here, Emma, but I am, like you, grateful to those less claustrophobic heroes who photographed it!
Another wonderful poem.
Kind Margie! Thanks. I hope this means you are well.
Such an elegant expression about an incredible creation!
Our beloved planet, incredible yes, and yet underfoot!
Your words and the fabulous picture say it all. No need t add anything else at all.
Kind Mimsie, even the most wonderful pictures from orbit and all words imaginable are just the beginning.
Love this poem! And the photograph, too. But the poem . . . ah!
Thanks, Elizabeth, not only for the compliments, but for the assurance that we've retired among good minds.
