Little Blue Ball (poem)


As I looked up at the stars last night I reflected for a moment on us all as passengers aboard our planet earth. I put this little poem together.

The little blue ball hurling through space
A ball all put together by means of God’s grace

As she goes on her way revolving around the sun
She travels at the same speed- never comes undone

365 ¼ days to complete a cycle - this is considered a year
As she travels through man’s - final frontier

All living creatures traveling without ever paying a fee
Being born to her nature we are handed a key

Mother earth with her oceans, prairies, jungles and forest
Keep all her living creatures - content and at rest

What a miracle it is to be a part of God’s creation
With him on board we find a mutual admiration

Little blue ball as you travel through time and space
Giving us all - as your passengers a time to embrace
