  1. Indeed. 🙂 I’ve always found joy in simply basking in wonder rather than trying to comprehend it. Stunning photo and insightful poem.

  2. Excellent. The wonder and terror of looking back at Earth from the moon are hard to imagine.

    In perfect agreement. I remember the first flight around the moon on that Christmas night as myself and others just stood looking at the full moon in amazement as there were 3 astronauts orbiting. The photos of Earth from the moon though cannot be beat.

    Thanks for the post.

    This is completely, breath-taking-ly beautiful.

  11. Wonderful poem! Thank you.

  12. This is beautifully written. Excellent photos to accompany it. Congratulations on being Freshly Pressed!

  13. I agree entirely. I also am envious on amazing it must of felt to set foot where, to our knowledge, no man has ever been before. In this day and age it seems hard to imagine being the first person set foot somewhere, to be the original adventurer or discoverer if you will. I have so much admiration for this great man yet so much envy of his experience. Rest in Peace Mr. Armstrong.

    Thank you for posting.

  15. Reblogged this on Blue Lyon and commented:
    Nice. Very nice.

  16. Let me play under the stars…

  17. I was 13 years old, but I remember it like yesterday, as we followed on our father’s old big radio! And our view of the moon from Toroma in present Agago District was more than generous in the cloudless sky.

    Beautiful poetry. I will definitely read your blog more. Congrats for being on freshly pressed!

  19. Beautiful and stunning use of words.

  20. Sometimes poetry needs to go beyond sense or logic, and aim straight for the gut reaction and the heart of wonder.

  21. Wonderfully put. As a youngster born in 1957, I was so intrigued by the nascent space program, and determined to be a part, that I became an engineer. Eventually, I built a company that designed IC’s for NASA as well as other space programs, and although I never made it into space, my designs and parts did.

    The wonderment has only grown with time. The details never made small the accomplishments of men willing to saddle up a rocket and take off into the unknown.

    Congrats on being freshly pressed.

    That is the most truth I believe anyone has ever put into words. Even thinking about things like this for a second can send chills down the back of more people then I can count. I can’t begin to imagine the unreal feeling Niel Armstrong was feeling as he took his first steps along the moon. Knowing only a handfull of people ever have been that far from home is crazy!

  24. I love a nice piece of creativity. Thanks.

  25. Wow – big thanks to all. An unexpected honour and great surprise to be on Freshly Pressed. Now I have to think hard about the next post!

  26. *sighs* absolutely great (: fell in love with it (:

  27. Beautifully written. A good attempt to describe the feeling to look back from moon.
