The Names of Planets

Today at DVerse haibun Monday, we are writing about Mars. 


The next planet from the sun, from us, is Mars, named for the Roman god of war. This red planet contrasts with our Earth, the “blue planet,” yet even if we have no battles in our name, we are at war with our home.

 

Verdant environs

Become brown under hot sun

When the sky’s afire
