A picture is worth a thousand words…

earthJust a Photo

It was Apollo 17, sailing farther than seen
in 1972 that snapped the photo of marble blue;
28,000 miles afar of how alone we really are
with not a face seen, and how little is green
on this round spinning ball containing us all;
it was known soon, taken in route to our moon
this first picture of our status as creature
just suspended in space is hard to embrace,
still guilty over Galileo, even in my Toledo;
its put on t-shirt and news of ocean blues,
this single frame was to change the game
yet all’s the same and that wasn’t the aim.
