An Errant Meteor

He was an errant meteor,
Blazing across the solar system,
Skirting the fringes of planetary atmospheres,

He was an errant meteor,
Arriving unannounced,
Inserting himself into alien worlds;

Playing with fire, uncaring of dangers,
He kicked up a storm,
Triggered tsunamis,

But he also melted hearts of nitrogen ice,
He loosened ancient glaciers,
Giving birth to new life.
