Earth II

In an area known
as the Goldilocks zone;
that rare and hospitable place,

a planet's been found
in an orbit around
a star like our own, deep in space.

With Earth to compare,
it has breathable air,
a surface that's fluid with water,

consensus conclusive,
the planet elusive,
where life as we know it could prosper.

Many light years away
it is likely to stay
far beyond our technologies ways,

and in hopes to be fair 
to the residents there,
I will pray that's the way that it stays.

    this is so cool. I just saw a movie on cable the other day. It was called "another earth" and it was about this exact same topic. Did you happen to see it? I hope your recovery has been a great one. Luv, Andrea

    "The Goldilocks Zone" It took me a little while to figure that one out. Baby Bear had everything just right, and that's why Goldilocks preferred Baby Bear's items over those of Mama Bear and Papa Bear. Astronomers are having such a great time finding new exosolar planets. If we could only break the light speed barrier. Good write!

    Witty, very witty. Indeed, would we be welcomed or hated... only time would tell but I think at our rate, we would be exiled. Interesting to think, we might someday be those locusts of the universe.
