One Small Step and One Giant Leap
by Randy Johnson

It has been half a century since the first moon landing.
It was a historical event that was absolutely outstanding.
The Apollo 11 landed on the moon's surface fifty years ago today.
Two astronauts walked on the moon which is over 238,000 miles away.
Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were pioneers like Daniel Boone.
On July 20, 1969, Armstrong and Aldrin landed on the moon.
As Armstrong stepped on the moon's surface, he said "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind".
When those brave astronauts left the moon to come home, the American flag was something they left behind.
I wasn't alive in 1969 so the moon landing wasn't something that I was able to witness.
But I'm guessing that it was awesome for those who were alive, a wonderful experience.

Push and Pull
by Kyle McAfee

Amidst a clear, warm night
I find myself falling into an ocean
Floating and bearing witness to the relationship
Between the Earth and the Moon.

A rivalry, moreover, a friendship, as old as time:
The moon teasing her older sister
Tugging and poking the Earth’s overflowing bodies of water
And the Earth, pulling back, not allowing the Moon to disturb her slumber.

into nebulous hued clouds
amidst countless diamond stars

On the Seas of Night
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

I loved sailing upon the blue sea, and I was never too far from it,
As one who knows sweet cravings, is seldom far from chocolates.

In my previous much loved vessel, I had sailed a thousand miles,
As rainbows are seen from a distance, bringing on happy smiles.

My entire family enjoyed sailing, which I'd mastered in my youth,
As the throngs lie ignorant, until the blush dawn moment of truth.

I had been to so many places, that I could not recollect them all,

The phantom of the asteroid
by Marc B. F.

How long it's been
since the airship reached
this distant space rock?
Years, decades,
or maybe more.
Stranded on this lonely asteroid,
I lost my thirst, my sense
and my body to the void.
The dust of my bones
made an atmosphere

Saturn
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

S pectacular sight, beautiful, distant and mysteriou s,
A mazing ring attraction, like colors to the nebul a,
T antalizingly close, but from golden sun far apar t,
U nchecked, wild and free, like egrets on the bayo u!
R are, unique space drifter, since the age of cance r,
N ewly probed, but scarcely understood, secrets hidde n.
