Martian weather

“Martian weather”

Take one round world
of lava
hardened to the core
with no oceans
only dust
and seasons of dust,

wind it in multicolored
thread,
cover it in Modge Podge
and hang it
from a ceiling fan.

Mars is only a summer away.

Write a poem, howsoever you feel inspired, by this image of that far far landing on Mars.”

  1. Hmm.. topical I suppose. That last line is revealing and unnerving both, especially in light of how this summer is feeling now. We usually look, of course we do, from our planet, our point of view – but interesting to consider how much instead, we are close, how we are near in likeness to Mars. Thanks for playing!
