.2. A Mystery Poem by David Threadgold

.2. A Mystery

Rating: 5.0

Look beyond the stars and planets
Through the vastness of deep space
To the edge of mans own vision
Travel to this unknown place

To find there’s only darkness?
The same as seen before
But it’s hard to tell the difference
When you’re on a mystery tour

Great poem David. It gets you to thinking how boring life must be for the astronaut. No 'landmarks' or lovely scenery to view as you travel along, just the same old occasional stars or star dust zooming by. Wouldn't you hate to just 'lose it' out there in space with no shrinks around? 10

A mystery indeed! We do not know what is out there and it's pretty exciting. Loved your poem, David. Warm Wishes, Marilyn
