A Photograph

Daily Prompt – An Ounce of Home

A Photograph

Mission clock, final countdown,
ten, nine; pulse races, time slows,
eight, seven; instrument checks,
six, five; set to go, no way back,
four, three; main engine fires,
two, one; ignition.

Rumble, noise, vibration, thrust,
Head heavy, blue sky,
Soon changes, black and stars.
One year, to circle earth,
Again and over; a photograph,
All I take; a reminder of love.

Among the stars now, I pass you,
Sixteen times between sunrises,
Every day, far, far, above you.
I yearn for your touch, so long,
Your eyes follow from the photograph,
All I take; a reminder of love.
