Glass Ceilings

In honor of Sally Ride

In time and space limits are defined
by perception
how far could you see
from the Challenger?
How far could you see
challenging the physics
of the status quo?

Did you know the barriers you would break
when you would not feign
ignorance?
Did you know the ride of your life
would be to lift others beyond the stars?

How gracefully you exposed the secrets of science,
overshadowing your intimate mysteries.
More than one glass ceiling
shattered from your legacy
leaving a cosmic trail of your own.

This poem can now be found in The Unique & Sundry, which happens to be available on Amazon.
