Hello 🙂



An astronaut

Fixed his collar

And promised his young son

Salt from his planetary adventures.


The boy

Pressed his toy grasshopper

Into his father’s hand

And said he hoped there was no crash.


These days

That alien salt

Sits in an airtight jar,

Twinkling its crystals on the mantelpiece.


The astronaut

Brought back many molecular mysteries

But did not fail

His starstruck son.


Dear reader,

You can decide whether this poem had a happy or sad ending. 

When I googled ‘molecular mysteries’ this (and this) article came near the top.  Did the astronaut’s time in space present him with more than he bargained for…?
