Neptune

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.
