A billion points of solar light
invade my awakening mind,
escape velocity has been achieved,
we’re leaving all gravity behind.
Looking back at my blue world,
a sapphire in the midnight sea,
I’ve never felt so far from home—
it’s lonely, here at apogee.

Drifting through the vacuum/womb
of silent weightlessness,
developed well beyond the egg
yet still quite helpless;
shaped by elemental forces
that beggar the imagination,
striving to reach the critical point
of orbital habitation.

***Wrote this way back when the first crew was placed on board.***
