Travelers

faster than the speed of light
almost a thousand times
two days it's taken through the night
much slower than our minds

Proxima in reddish glory
is coming into view
since Dragonfly's intriguing story
of other beings who

orbited a unknown spacecship
'round Proxima's Planet B
Dragonfly on this return trip
is to probe this mystery...

scanners scanning, sensors bristling
Dragonfly arrives
motors whir with quiet whistling -
it's probed yet still survives

mutual robotic travelers
embracing electrically
both exceeding their parameters
in orbit at Planet B

contact made then separation
both spacecraft then return
to different worlds in preparation
for robot minds to learn
