How great the passion they must have had

to have pursued the mini planet, Pluto

with their astronomical inquiries

launched several years ago

and now partially consummated.



To wait so long for a celestial event

is beyond my comprehension –

I who sometimes grow impatient

for the sun to set in my beloved west.



For those who continually pursue

what most of us have never seen

is well beyond my scope of understanding

and yet I must admit that I am moved

that there are people  in our midst

exploring portions of the space

well beyond the places of the human race.
