Cassini Haiku Sequence

Huygens upon
your finely instrumented
back; Saturn out-bound.

*

Huygens, released,
descends through Titan's hazy
veil; rock-strewn vista.

*

Marvel of geysers:
Blue-gray Enceladus with
cracks dubbed "Tiger Stripes."

*

Hyperion: Weird
sponge-like moon, believed riddled
with hundreds of caves.

*

Mimas: Small moon with
huge peaked crater, resembles
Vader's own Death Star.

*

Seeming placid clouds -
peach, rose, soft yellow - mask wild
supersonic winds.

*

Whether natural
light or infrared, Saturn's
rings are majestic.

*

Fly beneath ring-plane,
swoop up to graze Saturn's bright
globe: Ah, such a ride!

Re: Cassini Haiku Sequence

This is wonderful, and I mean that--it fills me with wonder for the universe out there that we will hopefully someday get to see.

Unveil star filled eyes,
Wonder! This moment, too brief
Cassini, good night.

Re: Cassini Haiku Sequence

Not a Haiku but memories of when we had a poetry section on the Wiki and in this old topic Mars Haiku competition!
