Reconnaissance

by Aidan Andrew Dun

acorn-1

Standing on the roots barefoot
embrace engine-housings
equipment of thrust.

Holding onto the trunk, airborne
be guided by the rocketry
into deep space.

Behind the sky discover
a small feather awning
canopy for a luminous acorn

The glade exactly as you left it
ready for another landing
in the faraway.
