Galactic Webb

…gratitude stretching to infinity.

James Edwin Webb
does still abide
for physicists
his death denied.

Sent to wander
dark arena
armed with mirrors…
and subpoena.

True lenses give
depth, breadth, and scope
to what’s now seen
beyond trust’s hope.

We wonderers
rely on light
of internet
to track Webb’s flight.

NOTE: James Edwin Webb (1906–1992-Infinity). May his spirit and energy live forever in the peace and wonder and gift of space. I am so grateful to have new views of other galaxies in the midst of all the other “news” going on now in humanity’s realm.
