A Haiku, The Unknown Universe

I am an avid lover of space and exploration of the universe. The other night I watched a 10-minute clip of Mars footage/photos, and it got me thinking, what if we did meet intelligent alien life?
A discovery like that would change everything we thought we knew. But then I took a devil’s advocate approach and asked myself, “we don’t even fully understand each other; how do we expect to understand alien life?”
Needless to say, I wrote a haiku about it!

The search for new life
Perfect strangers to our Earth
Ambitious creatures

Let me know what you think!
Thanks for reading!

  1. 💜 Awesome SupaSoulBro; as for “Alien” YOU!!! ARE Quite Right, We ARE Often “Alien” to Each Other on This Planet that Some Name Gaia…so imagine if an “Alien” landed in YOUR!!! Yard Greeted YOU!!! and Read YOUR!!! Mind then Shared Their Mind with YOU!!! Freely; would YOU!!! still Consider Them “Alien” The Whole Spirk (Spock/Kirk) Friendship is a perfect example as is The McCoy/Spock Sibling Jousting 🤔 ?…it’s Crystal Clear Clarity that ALL We Sense and Perceive is Some Form of Reality EveryOne; it’s Obvious that Dreams and ‘Fiction’ et al Must Originate SomeWhere

    …💛💚💙…

  2. Yup, I’m a space freak too, and I often wonder about both circumstances—if we find alien life, and if we find out that we really are alone in this universe.

    Interesting thoughts to have both ways, and my only sadness in life is being born in this era where I won’t get to see the true potential of space travel. Anyway, thanks for this post!

    1. Oh yes! I agree. What an innocent time. I remember being fascinated when my parent’s told me, “there is a man on the moon, you can see his face.” They said this innocently of course, and me being curious kid would stare and stare trying to catch a glimpse of the so called face. I even remember begging for a telescope so I can see it for myself. Haha! Thank you so much for reading and the interactions it is greatly appreciated! All the best! 😁🙏

  3. We would kill them before they landed. That’s what we do. Insane isn’t it? We kill everything, including ourselves. My guess is that the universes are full of intelligent life. Intelligent enough to stay away from us.

    1. Your comment reminds me of the movie The Day The Earth Stood Still (1951). Klaatu lands in Washington D.C., “comes in peace,” and even makes that fact known. However, being the frightened and intimidated creatures we are, someone shoots him when he reveals a harmless gift. “Intelligent enough to stay away from us.” —good one! I like that. Thanks so much for reading and the interactions it is greatly appreciated!

  4. I love space too. Space holds so many unknown wonders. I always think of the endless possibilities of what might be out there. We may never know all the secrets of the universe but it’s fun to speculate. 💫
