    Your poem reminds me of Matt Damon surviving in the film, The Martian.
    I like it!

    Ah, John Carter (the books) and so many others, but I've mostly only written about the space race to the moon for a commission.

    So many differences, even if we land on another planet, funny humans. :-)

    so much curiosity over
    the moons of Mars

    a tendril of red dust
    shifts from a footfall

    I couldn’t resist…

    from the tendrils of Enceladus spider’s silhouette

    backlit Pluto
    in the Kuiper belt
    owl’s hoot

    faint stars
    through the uneven stirrings
    marsh beetles

    alone always the night sky
