A Personal Universe
by Karl Waldbauer
Past the blazing star trails,
beyond the comet dust
Through Saturns regal rings,
crossing Plutos icy path
On my blue home planet
among the soaring pines
I searched for you.
Across the raging seas,
in lush fertile valleys
I searched for you.
I saw galaxies, so many moons,
felt radiation, then killing cold
when I reached for you
across my personal
Author's Note: Sometimes the greatest distance we travel is when we reach out to those closest to us.
