Tiny Vessel

A tiny vessel streaks thru the dark of space

racing forward to the


The capsule’s surface sprays beams of light

into the void

Its lonely glimmer like a lamp

on an empty street

As the little humans busy themselves with gadgets and dials

back on Earth

a song is hummed by a child

her eyes wet with anticipation

as she dances around the rosy

a pocket full of flowers

Her sweet melody

bound with the thoughts and cries of every person that ever lived

hurls across galaxies


like breath

like fire

its steady sound splicing space

like a million tiny diamonds

to the farthest reaches

editors note:

We’re just a song in space, searching for a cosmic ear. – mh clay
