perhaps it prefers to remain speechless, and we would prefer it that way, to maintain the mystery. Modern people might be too much of a shock or maybe even were, already, if its eyes and ears took them in. Fascinating and one of my favourites of your types of subjects, dealt with superbly.

I always complain that not enough modern poets write on truly modern themes. You seem to be an exception, and indeed exceptional.

...I saw a lady with a mole on her back that looks just like that....maybe that's what it really is? Ha...and a more serious, "oh my!" Great write Chris!

Until this mound of Mars speaks as prolific as your poem, I'm content to howl at the moon. I am further intrigued by the city-like structures believed to adorn Big Red. Time will tell. Like your stuff!

Well-done and thought-provoking, Chris - we often seem to be on the same wavelength - see my poem, "Mars Looks Down" (in my Published and Cited folder) for a response.... d:-)

Incredible, really, very well written and portrayed. I was particularly moved by the line referencing the limitations of man at the end of the fourth stanza.

It's amazing, it makes ya wonder what's really out there. Great write. I wanta know how ya wrote it. Did ya study the picture? Or what. I have looked at pictures and wrote about it, like if I were there. Or to image what it would be like to be there, etc.
