We still see stars shine

when they are gone. So we can

see you in your dark.


A patch of clear floor,

in a crowded, messy room 

clears space in my mind.


You may feel alone

but orbiting you are those

who can pull you close. 


Galaxies form from

words on a page, opening 

up more world to me. 


A shout, the void hears.

Fall onto a black hole and

friction makes you shine. 


One small step for most

is a massive leap for some.

Cheer ev-er-y inch. 


Astronauts need teams

to stay safe in the expanse 

of space. There’s as much


unexplored in our

brains. Humanity wants to

find others like us.


‘Living with’ is a 

mantra for alien thoughts 

that invade. Come in


Peace not pieces, pick

up the flag. I was here. We

shall live together. 


*nickname for the Japanese Science module on the ISS. Means hope.
