Four S-F Haiku

from the fanzine Science Fiction Five-Yearly #12 (2006)

These four looks, farther and farther into the future, were spread over several pages; the last was on the back cover.

A dot and a line,
My ship and I at morning
When both suns arise.

Faster-than-light drive
Brings together people who
Now had better talk.

We made matter! We
Did it! Our hands open to
Energy, space, time.

We who laugh at time
Wonder at the blaze of a
Trillion trillion suns.
