• When I don’t hear from you I get very sad

    Tonight, I imagine that we are like the two comets that are passing by earth right now.

    Me, the closer (and smaller) of the two — a comet with the simple name BA14 — I will pass 2.2 million miles from Earth on March 22.

    You, the larger comet — with the equally unglamorous name of 252P — reaching your closest distance today, March 21, about 3.3 million miles away from planet earth.

    We used to be together, inseparable! One beautiful glowing comet, spewing a glorious tail of organic matter into space, like a farmer does in spring time with the grain and seeds on the field, we were traveling at the speed of light, until an unforeseen event violently cut us apart.

    Now our trajectories are similar galactical elypses, we are close, we are nearby yet separate, to never be reunited again, always and forever, until the end of times.

      Dear Author,
      You paint a beautiful yet tragic picture.
      Even though this letter is short it speaks volumes!
      Love it!

      Faithfully

      Dear Faitfully,

      Only just did I receive news that someone answered my tragic poem.

      This delay is due to the fact that when traveling into the outer reaches of our solar system, unfortunately it takes a bit longer for messages to reach.

      Nevertheless I thank you from the bottom of my gaseous ice vapour and carbon stardust core for your kind reply, this meant a lot to me as currently I am finding myself sad yet again because very little news has been send to me from planet Earth and my twin comet, 252P will not be reunited with me for another 2 billion light years.

      Best wishes

      BA14
