A short poem in response to a writing prompt
Our thankful light forgot to shine
Oh wonder of wonders carrying the messages of thine
In august assembly we traverse expanses so vast
Sometimes in the future, sometimes in the past

Seeking cells that harbor life so precious
A frenetic pace, vibrant and luscious
Inexorable is our gleam leaving no shadow hidden
For our search is a survival of the unbidden

We give our hunt a semblance of verisimilitude
Ponder on that one blue dot, judging its attitude
Were we remiss in casting our glory on such a speck?
For the infighting and hatred at speeds beyond breakneck

They see us as thy gods that illuminate from above
Showering benevolence, religion and rules out of love
For once our thankful light forgot to shine
And forever doomed the one that was three of nine
