Becoming an Astronaut

Can we see ourselves from above Sitting here reading in our home On a road in an area Part of a landscape In a country lying north Of a ginormous land mass Home to billions of people Living with other billions of people Forming just a fraction Of the squillions of creatures Breathing Drinking Eating Breeding Evolving Amongst a resource so awe-some We are blinded by its beauty? Can we see that we are one and the same thing? Earth.

By Charlene McAuley Inspired by The Overview Effect
