A poem about the planets above. How they relate to us and the history of humankind. I also try to work with all kinds of mythology, but in the end we are all left to ourselves.

The wanderers

In a beginning
I was with you -

The wanderer.

Big waves came rolling
And in my mouth an ancient name -


We down here
Look up to you -


It's not dark yet,
Still my heart is restless -


Soon the skies are as black as the sea -

I love your use of language, simple lines which say a great deal.

Wonderful. I always thought it strange how men of science gave mythological names to the heavens.
