A Million Light Years Away

The Poem Without Graphics

A Million Light Years Away

Floating with time in spaces far, dark, and wide
Sputnik voyages further and further
Fear of the unknown
A will to live
A will to fly
Ready to break the tie
Almost

This poem is a  homage to one of my favorite authors, Haruki Murakami.

“Sometimes I feel so—I don’t know—lonely. The kind of helpless feeling when everything you’re used to has been ripped away. Like there’s no more gravity, and I’m left to drift in outer space.”

– SPUTNIK SWEETHEART, Haruki Murakami

This is so true!
When we think of the vast expanse of the universe, it feels as if we are like a speck of dust! always a fear of unknown…
It was nice that you added a link of Haruki Murakami – I was thrilled to read about his works…
