So far away… Yet this is now home, the shelter where we can repair, rebuild our strength.
Here they won’t find us, such a small planet, and a pale star, insignificant: on the edge of the known world, and the sea…
The blue ocean will hide us, we will build a village on these shores, our children will learn here, they will learn about Earth, and the Republic.
Then, one day, perhaps in generations, they will take again to the stars, and leave this world.
But, for now, the blue planet is our home.
Inspired by Sue Vincent’s last photo prompt of 2017, and a viewing of The Last Jedi.
