Alien Encounter
By Wesley Williamson

I have seen, I think,
the craters of the moon,
desolation strangely lit,
over which astronauts
lumber with clumsy grace.
I have seen, I think,
a crescent Earth
mottled with the mandala
of life,
poised alone
before a crowded
universe of stars.

I have seen these wonders
at second hand,
computer accentuated
and edited for T. V.,
but I believe them,
I think.
May I not then believe
that our two solitudes
are not eternal?

Oh come, explorer,
cross the bounds of space,
and meet me here,
halfway between
our strange and separate worlds.
