Pale Blue Dot

Today I saw a pale blue dot
from Voyager

It was photograph taken about
1990 in December

The picture was of a planet
with which we've all become familiar

And even though it was small
barely visible

It was beautiful

A bright pale blue dot
for you
for me


I picture the Voyager spacecraft
alone in the dark

Listening to the Beach Boys
and dreaming of a naked cowgirl

Floating across the ceiling

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?
