I saw the Atlantis land

Forty years back
In happier times
While I was learning to ride
A bicycle
Some others, Eggheads,
Dreamt up
Re-usable Rockets.
Up they went,
So many times
And Re-entered.
They called the rockets
Shuttles.
Mission accomplished now
And the Shuttles rest.

Sometimes a door
Has to close
For another to open.

Private enterprise
Space tourism
Asteroid travel –
Possibilities at a
Galactic scale.

Let the Shuttle rest
Get out of town
Into the Highways.

My mind soared
As
I saw the Atlantis land.
