Scifaiku: Canals

 

Canals
mistaken translation
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.
