The Galaxy Traveller
As I gazed at the silvery moon that was smiling down at me,
My sweaty hands slipped as I clambered into my space suit,
Terrified of what I was about to experience, my legs were jelly.
As the countdown began, the rocket roared as loud as thunder.
5 -, 4 -, 3 -, 2 -, 1 -, BLAST OFF!
Thick smoke billowed from the engine,
Swallowing the ground as the rocket gained speed,
Zooming through the air like a speeding bullet from a sniper rifle.
A vicious lion, the clouds and smoke devoured the rocket.
The white blanket disappeared, a black canvas revealed,
Stars winked playfully as I travelled further through Space,
The eight planets chased each other around the Sun;
Saturn’s rings danced around in circles.
Earth was a blue and green dot in space; far, far away,
The comets ran through the mysterious vast black background.
Reaching the end of the Solar System, a fluffy cloud appeared;
The nebular cloud was as colourful as an intergalactic rainbow.
Rays of sunlight burst through the darkness, waking me.
Was it just a dream?
