I look up at the night sky and see the full moon.
It triggers a sense of wonder at the vastness of the universe.
Are we Earthly humans alone among those who appreciate its splendor?
Am I alone in my wanderlust to know what is beyond the moon and the stars?
Oh to be a nomad exploring the universe
Rather than being tethered go this tired, old planet.
