Christmas on Mars
on the cold dunes of distant Mars
in Mariner Valley under the stars
where sometimes it seems to be almost warm
and sometimes obscured by a dust storm
recalling the beautiful, liquid and luscious
world we are from, where water rushes
from towering mountains down to the ocean,
life everywhere in constant motion...
Venus's tail's terrestrial brushing
with curtains of light that crackle the hush in
the awesome beauty of polar night
remembered on Mars with the beautiful sight
of electric currents intertwining
between two planets realigning
Earth and the Moon on the horizon...
Christmas on Mars is still so surprising...
hovering over a valley on Mars
serenely contemplating the stars
Uranus and Saturn above in the sky
with you by my side so warm and nearby...
