Carl’s Dream

We look to see

the small fires in our galaxy

around which float pebbles and gas balloons

mostly icy rocks and dots festooned-

to be able to discern from a distance

their construction, we learn

that we exist amongst many worlds-

billions in just this whirlpool alone.

We now see

the exciting possibility

that the worlds we find

will be of a certain kind:

small, blue, green with a white cloudy haze

hoping that perhaps we may one day

even gaze,

the telltale signs of wondrous life.
