The Skies of Mars

The sky of Mars has changed
since the seeds of Earth blossomed
and there grew the huge carbon stalks into the sky
making fairy tales true
now the stalks blow into the thin thin air
strands of aerogel
now pink and red clouds
coccoon mars
holding in
fragile atmosphere
but sometimes
when the settlers look up
they swear something is looking down
