2016 NaPoWriMo Poem #26: The Next Expedition

Some of the men
watched the sun
sink into the
long-awaited ocean,
but she preferred
to look at the sky,
as befitting her name.

York joined her
and motioned
at the stars,
fixed and wandering.

“How long,
do you reckon,
it’ll be before they
send an expedition

She shrugged.
“However long it may be,
they won’t get there
without us, either.”
