Dinosaurs Wore Coloured Feathers

Earth’s sole sentient stands
on cliff tops, looking to the stars.
Below, unheeded, the thoughtless range
through cooling oceans, jungle lands
and unrolling, unmapped plains.
“Tonight, we try.”
Feathers preened, muscles trained.
Reptilian brains abuzz.
The launch is power, synchronised lift,
and all but one fall back.
He is their defiance of limits,
wearing moonlight and aimed for its heart.
They will conquer new worlds,
live forever.

Earth’s sole sentient stands
on city towers, looking to the stars.
