Columbus Day (U.S.)

Columbus Day

Always fallen leaves blowing around,
In my memories,
The darkness creeping in,
The daylight hours noticeably dwindling.

This year,
We contemplate again the Chris Columbus
whom we celebrate with a day off,
or not.
He's the man who set sail for the new world. 
many years ago.

I will let others decide their feelings about Chris,
But no doubt,
The Guy was Brave!

So I pondered the latest photo-tweet 
Mark Kelly, Astronaut 
who is spending a year in space.

He is like a modern day Chris Columbus,
Deserving of our awe and appreciation,
He has mine.
