Earth II

Written by: Wayne Sapp

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.
