A Vacation



The space travelers
Riding yellow tricycles
Calm and composed
The wings steady
As they clutch their cameras tight
A few feathers fly
Here and there
But smart they were too
The feathers didn't distract the frame.

They know the art
The space travelers
Riding yellow tricycles
Through the asteroid belt
Punching the interfering rocks
And debris that play naughty
The GPS map correct
Destination Earth
Now in sight.

Rattle in their nerves
Hearts race excited
A much promised vacation
Welcoming them warmly
The space travelers
Riding yellow tricycles
Pedals rotating faster
Prepare to descend
On this new land.

  4. Lovely imagery...something about your poem reminds me of Douglas Adams' The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I love the sci-fi feel to it :)

  6. I love those yellow tricycles, G.S Having worked at NASA for fourteen years I say there was a lot of fine tuning done to get them here, including the pedaling rate.
    Welcome, Space Travelsers.

  17. Ooh, I love anything to do with space and I dream quite often that I'm in space and I have this awesome diamond encrusted bracelet that somehow lets me travel and provides me with oxygen and instead of a spaceship, I have skates.
    I loved this and really enjoyed reading it. Thanks so much for sharing.
