Haiku Commemorating a Historic Event

A few days ago, people looked up to see a historic site: the space shuttle Discovery blasting across the sky for the last time.

It rode atop a special modified Boeing 747 airplane on its way to the Air and Space Museum, Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center.

The event received plenty of coverage by local and national media, including PBS, whose photo is shown above. (Read the related PBS article here.)

Here is a haiku by my friend Karen Young about the experience:

Today the space craft
Got a real life piggy back
Ride to Washington
Thanks to Karen for sharing. More haikus to follow!
