Itinerant In Space

I sail over green forests,
Ride jet streams above seas,
Gain speed like lightning,
While earth seeks to please.

I sip nectar from Big Dipper,
North Star looks and lingers.
Comets whisper amazement,
As planets crook their fingers.

My soul soars over Orion,
I’m an itinerant in space!
A far off galaxy beckons,
Can my body keep the pace?

Hobnobbing with celestial members,
On through ethereal constellations.
Forget the wild blue yonder,
Touring cosmos inspiration.

Soaring higher, faster, farther,
Climbing rungs of Jacob’s ladder.
My adrenaline exhilarates,
Anticipation gladder.

Exploring worlds, light years apart.
Unbelievable, yet on and on I seek.
Soon wafted into heaven, 
Angels brush my cheek.

Symphonic melodies fill the air,
As I skate on streets of gold.
I’m happy to live eternally,
While heaven I behold!
