Italian canelli creates hope
of Martian life
A Scifaiku by Wendy Van Camp
Illustrated by Wendy Van Camp
This scifaiku poem is inspired by the history of our study of Mars. This mistake in translation by a famous Italian astronomer became the inspiration for Edgar Rice Burroughs’s “John Carter of Mars” series and H.G. Wells “War of the Worlds” among many others.
This poem appears in “The Planets: a scifaiku poetry collection” available on AMAZON.
