An Astronaut Looks Back at Earth

Strange to think –
that tiny blue marble
rolled in barely perceptible clouds
is a whole world –
suspended in a huge starry void
of empty, silent planets –
a whole world, with all its history and knowledge and technology –
small and still
shrinking to yet another tiny star
in an endless sky.
