NaPoWriMo Day One: Book Cover

Task for Day One: write a poem inspired by a book cover.

If Winnie the Pooh can do it, so can I.
Defy the laws of physics and reach for the stars;
at least no bees are involved,
though the debris of 80 years of space exploration takes some clearing;
A history not entirely without shame:
Ghostly memories of the unsung, unwilling animauts
who risked a  one-way ticket to eternity.

I take my hat off (if I had one) to you all
and on reflection have  decided to remain on terra firma.
An elephant can dream…
