SCIFAIKU: Response to One Deep Breath Prompt for 4/23/07



an unopened
braille book by the crater
memories of earthrise


One Deep Breath's prompt this week is to consider Earth Day. The piece above is a scifaiku, a haiku inspired form with science fiction/fantasy/horror themes. In the case of this scifaiku it may not be one for much longer. Humans have stood on the moon and looked at earthrise. However, I don't believe a blind person has yet had the joy of remembering earthrise from beside a moon-crater. :-) May we all remember our earth's many beauties and joys, and treat Her accordingly.

Thought provoking, it reminded me of The Golden Apples of the Sun, a short story by Ray Bradbury, and incidentaly the last line of a poem by WB Yeats. How poetry runs round the universe!
Thankyou

Thanks for educating me on scifaiku. And what a wonderful introduction to its form.
