Author Donna J. Sanders: Red Planet

 

I looked like her once

a turquoise marble in the sky

with wisps of silver

swirling with a gentle vengeance

to nourish my foundation

But the mortal beings

pulled their roots from my soul

and I died a little more each day

from the immaculate separation

leaving a wasteland

too dry to shed a tear
