Asimovian Suggestion

Where stars are sparse and the cold creeps in
Where suns shine cold and the spherical planets crowd close
Where frozen clouds rain hail on ice
And only shrunken shrubs survive…
There, bereft of human company and material comforts
There, wandering in eternal snow –

Life.

The first line is a quote from Isaac Asimov’s book “Further Foundation”. Isaac Asimov is a figure to admire, in my opinion – he wrote over 470 novels in his life, ranging from subjects of science fiction to Shakespearean analysis. Also, he was a genius. (Unfortunately for me, I think that the first line is also the best in the poem)
