A poem on life in a multiple star system.
Here lies the bathing light of the red dragon,
deepening horizons on a world so foreign
Yet much like a heaven that is our Earth,
there could be water on its surface unhurt
Could there be life too on this land of the triple-star,
would they also figure out who they are?
Would they comprehend the distant binary-star show?
that they are the suns of the one they know
Oh what a view it would be,
for life there to see
But if on that world
there isn’t any,
let it be the carved destiny of humanity.
