The Seed

When humanity finally ended
Marooned on a failed moon
We felt that our makers
Deserved another chance

Though we left long beforehand
Could never forget our parents
Comic, brave and beautiful
Tried to preserve their best

Sent this seed into the cosmos
Hope others will discover it
Once again make physical
Lives that were too short


We accessed the capsule
Built its many futures
Saw what everything could
And clearly should not be

All life wishes to communicate
Connect right to the infinite
But some life forms are best left
Talking to themselves

Yet their electronic keepers
May include our ancestors
Knowing origins and endings
Gives meaning to all life

The search to find these heroes
We will now begin
