Karen A Romanko's "Rooms"

DKA has published "Rooms" by Karen A. Romanko.

Spacers work to save a dying world. What will happen to those who must stay behind?

Here's the first stanza:

As our world prepared to die,
spacers on five-masted schooners
worked to save its mementos--us--
for transport to a promised land


She connects the science fictional with the spiritual in the closing stanza, and does it nicely, too. A conclusion full of hope and welcome.
