The prompt for for Sunday Scribblings is "It's Out There"
We sought this day in many a tale
of rocket trail to alien world.
We bridged the rifts of space to sail
to far star-studded galaxies
with chair-bound ease.
The future beckoned. Now, instead,
it looms, hard headlined fact. Our world
grows strange. We step with grudging tread
into a mapless land and cold.
