A tree stump with in the center hole


There are nights in the summer when the air is still and warm and the moon is full. I go outside late in the evening and stand absorbing the cool white light. 

Looking up st the moon, you can see the craters and plains crisp and bright. Will we ever live there? Or move on to try and terraform Mars? It would seem strange to look up and see people living there instead of the raw, undeveloped landscape of those summer nights. 

I move inside to dream of lichen on the red soils of Mars instead.
