The dusk casts its shadow upon the land
robbing the light,
setting the stage for caliginosity .
Moonlight faint against transitioning light
stretches eerie fingers onto a land
that allows no man.
Twisted steel, mimicking an uncanny monster,
only its shadow moves with moon passing.
Silence, cold and unrelenting as death
is undisturbed by gentle breeze,
faintly, a rustle interrupts calling attention be paid,
will be ignored forever more.
Huge sockets once capable of sight
blindly bear witness,
a planet once beautiful and bright,
races through the universe
devoid of life.
