Dreams 5

Bottomless waters,
Luminescent trees,
Upside-down,
From a stained-glass ceiling,

Faint grey shapes,
Of leviathans deep,
And a mighty great bass,
Through which they speak;

Life amongst the trees,
Where monsters cannot reach,
Vibrant, rich ecosphere,
Of antiquities deep;

Life at all scales,
Microscopic to titanic,
An ocean abuzz,
With this chemically-rich soup,

Feeding off the heat,
From a celestial dance,
And bathed in a rhythm,
Of tectonic vibration;

Why did you come to Europa,
Grandad?

I longed to swim free,
And fulfill my destiny.

    1. Thanks Cassa!! Yes, there is so much wonder in the real-life world, besides the fictional!

      Speculating what there could be based on what is currently known, is fun and helps show the amazing possibilities of the universe, even really close to home. And so much beauty, too! An impossible amount of beauty in the solar system.
