Oh, how beautiful is the planet Neptune.
When I think about Neptune, my thoughts flow toward the oceans of Earth. The deep, serene blue of a deep, dark ocean teeming with life.
I envision the Roman god of the sea, trident in hand, long hair and beard flowing in the sea breezes.
When I gaze at the photo of the blue planet, I feel calm. I sense our distant planetary cousin in the vastness of space. I feel the coolness of the ice giant in its reflection of distant sunlight.
Neptune turns, its blue bands of ice swirling dream images in my sleep. It is a dreamer’s planet.
Astronomy has taught me many things over the years, inspiring me with images such as this one.
I stand in awe.
