Searching for Galileo

Io, Europa, Ganymede, Callisto
They of the Medicean stars named
Famed satellites of Jupiter
Galilean moons of the heavens

He sailed the solar system
Through nebulous times
Orbited through space unknown
Viewed heavenly bodies anew

In times of heresy and fear
His words shook the world
Astronomy echoes to this day
From this man of far sighted vision

Today we crave his spirit alike
Minds open to the possibilities
For people unafraid to walk
To step into the unknown

We wade the shallows of the tides
Filled with reflect of clouds on water
Where the breeze now blows
We search for Galileo

  1. Excellent, particularly admire the ending, “where the breeze now blows/we search for Galileo”

  2. This is wonderful too–and the last stanza is absolutely haunting, beautiful. My goodness.
