Columbus Day (U.S.)
Always fallen leaves blowing around,
In my memories,
The darkness creeping in,
The daylight hours noticeably dwindling.
We contemplate again the Chris Columbus
whom we celebrate with a day off,
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.
