Traveling Light

During the night as we soundly slept
our house embarked on a journey through space
we knew when we woke that something had changed
when we looked out the window old Saturn flew by
it was just like the pictures but of course much bigger
we checked the kitchen, the fridge was still running
we decided on bagels, cream cheese and lox
brewed up some coffee, it was out of this world
we enjoyed the peace deep space can provide
our canary was singing, Easter was near
Mazie baked beer bread while I
scrolled through the memes, inspiration
was overflowing as we passed by Neptune
we stood by the window to gaze at the scene
our old dog was napping, dreaming of dinner
at this stage of life he is focused on food
perhaps were not so different that way
tonight as we leave the solar system behind
we’ll fry up some chicken and down a fine wine
