Reaching for the stars
“What was humanity thinking? What are we even doing here?” He thought, realizing he’d spoken aloud when she replied.
“I don’t know? Improving our lot in life, I suppose.” She leaned back against the crater wall.
Sitting next to her on the surface of the moon beneath the shadow cast by the overhanging crater, he looked out over the moon’s dry and lifeless terrain.
He glanced up at the great cosmic darkness sparkling with trillions of stars while here they safely sat, encased in an invisible shell. Scientific technology had come far. He sighed, a heavy sigh of uncertainty.
“What are you thinking now, dearest one?”
“What do we do next?” He replied turning his head to gaze into her soft brown eyes filled with so much love.
She smiled, a gentle little playful smile, so adored by him from the moment of their first meeting. She rose and held her hand out to him.
Their bodies swayed in fluid motion together, moving to the rhythm of their universal souls.
(We are the searchers of our futures. We are the seekers of our tomorrows. We are the dreamers of our possibilities. We are of the planet Earth.)
dance for the future
beckoning stars await us
our past stepping stones

A philosophical moment – when we are overcome by the grandeur, simple poetry in movement is the best answer, yes, to dance. The way you write is bewitching!
