Happy birthday Ray

Author Ray Bradbury turns 90 years old on 22 August 2010.  The Planetary Society is presenting him with a huge birthday card with good wishes from people such as you and I.  You can post your birthday greeting for him until 9 August.

The greetings are limited to 250 characters, and I took advantage of a return character costing the same as a space or punctuation to write him this poem:

From first rocket to last pricking of thumbs,
your words and ideas carried our minds
past asteroid belts &
to the light and dark parts of the soul
Helping make the 20th century
using a mirror as a tool to
reflect the future in the past
