This New Planet Kepler 22b

This new planet, recently seen,
Believe it may be blue and green.
Possibly water in the ground,
Temperate weather, all year round.
A wondrous world, it may seem.

It’s an astro-scientist’s dream,
The “Goldilocks” planet regime.
It’s astonishing that we found
This new planet

It’s proclaimed “Earth-like” by the team.
Can there be life that is supreme?
This discovery will astound,
And to mankind, be so profound.
600 light-years, us between
This new planet.

    Wishing you glad tiding for the upcoming Holiday Season Greg. It is the time of year to reach out to old friends and new friends as well. As the old year ends and the New Year arrives I wish blessings to you and yours always. May you be blessed with inspiration and see your writing endeavors cascade upward in 2012. Love, Carol
