Title: Mother’s Voice
Author: Vasil Berezhnoy
Characters: Astronaut and his mother
Theme: “Distant scene enchants the eyes”.

The astronaut’s mother was excited because it was her first visit to the moon. She looked around and admired the moonscape. She wondered that the moon was a very beautiful place. However, her sentiments dominated her.

She thought of her orchards as it was the time for blooming. She was dumbfounded at the enormous lily-shaped tent over a crater of a kilometer in diameter. It might be an exotic experience to have a swim on the moon.

But she was quite sentimental about the swim in the river. The Dnieper on the Earth. Long-range spaceships were ready for an expedition to a neighbouring galaxy. She asked why people should go off into an unknown place.

She was worried about why should people invite trouble. The astronauts were keen on more expeditions. Their scientific thirst could never be quenched. Mother wanted the people to settle properly on the solar system, before going further. To his mother, living on the Earth seemed to be a miracle.

It was a cradle of life to her. Even she made her son realize the fabulous beauty of the native planet, Earth. She could make the astronaut feel that his expedition to another galaxy was not very significant.

But the astronaut had no other alternative as he had already got selected for space travel. It was a must for him but to the mother the life on the earth was everything, “There’s something cool about being involved in new missions to other planets” – David Grinspoon.
