Weekend Writing Prompt — Wanderlust


6FF29E89-3087-4D4C-83A7-7A00F7B99A1EI 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.

(68 words)

    If space travel, even a trip to the moon, opened up for anyone to go, would you?

      Maybe a few decades ago I would have, but at my advanced age, I think I’ll pass.

        You are only as old as you feel (and boy am I old today! 😂)
