Mars

copyright© shonima burman Suddenly the tallest mountain set on fire, And I suddenly leaped three times higher, Oh God, I wondered ''Is this your wrath''? But wait, wait, I guessed that was not Earth! There was a beautiful sunrise, But the sun was half of it's size. Barren yet beautiful, red yet dull, Perhaps existence of life was also null. I could not believe my own eyes, Oh,God, that was Mars to my surprise! But how did I come here? My mind stopped working in utter fear. Suddenly a martian man stood by my side, And observed me in utter surprise. Then he started nodding his head, His whole body seemed to be painted in red. Tears started rolling down my cheeks, Being sure that I was in high risk. Minutes within his fellows joined him, And they talked in their own language as it seemed. Together they leaped three times, And sung a song similar to our rhymes. At this point they seemed harmless, And they tried to make me their friend I guess. I also nodded my head and leaped three times, And tried to sing a song in the form of rhyme. It worked magically and I became their friend, Through gestures, nodding we interacted till the end. We came to know each other, And we had fun altogether. Now it was time for me to return to Earth, Where everybody was eagerly waiting for my birth.
