A Ship Waits
A ship waits for me anchored to the moon.
The breeze impatiently tugs at the sails.
Waves sweep into shore and out to sea.
Whales of Jupiter implore my name.
I’ll glide on cosmic clouds
and across immense galaxies.
There are planets to explore
far away and perilous.
In the darkness, I shall travel
stealthily, so as not to awaken Erebus.
*Whales of Jupiter is a joke pertaining to Jupiter’s moon, Ganymede which scientists say contains a salty ocean with more water than Earth.
*Erebus is the Greek god of darkness
