Final Trip

Supermoon 2013, Julio Cortez, AP
Pic prompt courtesy of The Mag 176
 
She flew
to the moon
and back
in one night,
the flight
a liberty--
consequences
unknown.
 
Chance
enhanced
white dust dreams,
 pink clouds--
nonchalance
the blush
before 
descent.

Wow! I love this fanciful trip that is so liberating! Well done, Laurie!

I really like the lines

'the flight
a liberty

unknown.'

They make me feel like this was a joyride that was so exhilarating !
