March Challenge #9 – Exploration

From Cloaked Monk’s March Challenge:

On this day in 1454, explorer Amerigo Vespucci was born. The continent we live on is named after Vespucci. Reflect on exploration.

Another new form for me today, the etheree. On a subject very near and dear to my heart.

Final flight
Brave adventurer
Traveler, explorer
You took our dreams to the stars
You dared to create the future
Eldest of the fleet, first to retire
Welcome home, Lady, you have earned your rest
