Tinker Posted April 13 Share Posted April 13 April 12, 2023Colonel Yuri GagarinKremlin WallNecropolis, RussiaDear Yuri,I salute your accomplishments and thank you for your giftto us, the people of the earth. You made an agelessdream of mankind, a reality.The first daring human to go into outer spaceand return. On this day sixty-two years ago you circledthe earth in a capsule and splashed back down safely.Because of you, exploration of the universe is a possibility.Hero of the Soviet Union and inspiration to humanity.You left us too soon doing what you loved,spiraling from the sky.May you be flying in the heavenspleased with seeing all that came after.Gratefully, A Star Gazer ~~Judi Van Gorder Prompt: Write a letter poem.
