Last Flight of an Astronaut

A Poem

I flew outside to see what night

Was like above the sky

The stars were more and morseso bright

With no twinkle but my eyes


My home below like marble stone

Adrift a sea of sparks

Was aglow with the light that shone

On the white and swirling marks


I saw its face so marked by days

And years so long ago

And yet so young the song it sung

Of which I'm but a note


The song is brief to those beneath

And my work is nearly done

As for rest they'll see the best

The chorus is yet to come

Lizzie: This is such an interesting book because it's honest. The main character is, first and foremost, herself. She isn't a martyr, the strongest, a motherly figure, a classic YA female protagonist, or any trope for a female character. She's real. The story isn't claiming to do anything, to preach anyt...

diana: This book made me cry so much it made my throat hurt. I really like this book and would read it again. :)

Sarge: Well I finally feel that I am writing this for an adult. I like it. I wish I had more time to give reading it right now. It has my interest. By the way I have been to some of those new age stores and brought meditation crystals. You're right, they have to call your name or they won't be any ...

jusdafax: This is an enjoyable SF/coming of age story with a strong plot some well drawn characters and an interesting background in Green Hell. I enjoyed the flow of the book although I did find the switching between different characters and venues (good guys vs bad guys) a bit abrupt and off putting. A...

lilyonalillypad: The novel is not completed yet, but what has been written so far has been excellent. The story is interesting and I like the characters, I can’t wait to learn more about Jasen, his people and abilities. I am hoping that when he has his full power (no more details as I don’t want to spoil anything...

Irony1: HeyI really liked your story, the description of the difference between the species was different and intriguing. The style of writing was not very complex, but as such caters to a younger audience whilst retaining developed, complex ideas.Thanks!

chariethomas7: I love the plot line on how it's not just how Elizabeth has to deal the her lover but her ex husband and child. I personally scared that she would get caught with her child but not Ben. I would love if this story can continue. The ending is making me want more.

cassmessier16: This was actually really well written. Came off with a totally different perspective. When she told Julian to drink her blood, that was almost freaky. Because if it were me I would be totally spooked and not he like "oh yeah, sip sip". It was good to read something that I personally wouldn't have...

Juzme34: The author catches the emotions of both the patient and the lead scientist well. Te reader can't help but wonder how waking a person up is going to save the human race, let alone prove cy-humans aren't horrible.. But the story does need a good editing. Sometimes the words are the wrong tense, a ...

Pablo Rojas: Love the story, at the end it is a western story, simple, yet giving hints and pieces of the situation that is happening all over ravencroft´s universe. easy to read and always keeping with the main stream story I want to keep reading about, Olafson´s adventures.
