The Weight of Martian Water

Peeling back the blackened veins of ancient crust, forgotten fragments whisper soggy secrets. Their enforced exile loosening tongues that now bubble over with stories of impossible waterways – teeming canals that once sang with the sound of a thousand babbling brooks.   Beneath a sterile gaze, these rusted reservoirs divulge …

Beneath an Iron Sky

In the irascible search for life the faint twinkling of distant stars expose giant globes of gaseous ferocity; their inferred magnitude drifting too close to their sun, falling like Icarus into a labyrinth of tidal force.   As the searing heat scorches the barren sky, estranged metals disperse into the …

Ancient Rings of Time

Giant clams lie settled atop distant mountain peaks; their arid husks supressing the brackish smell of ancient waves that once bathed them in their shallow, dampened beds.   Peeling back the layers with chemical precision, we read huddled rings like geological Tarots; tealeaves strained by Gaia’s aged sieve.   Calcified …

Moulded Galaxies

Across dank, shaded habitats of cosmic intent specks of light flicker into life. Emerging from chaos, filaments of matter weave their nets; unclassifiable structures that stretch across the emptiness as ethereal webs that glisten in the dewy dawn.   Barely trodden paths glow faintly in the dark; celestial causeways that …

Jellied Eggs

Between invisible barriers of cool, indifferent oceans transparent medusas dance across clandestine currents. A quorum of gonads sparkling beneath the waves, their immature contents alluringly displayed, like rails of haute couture in lavish department store windows.   Rising to meet the dawn, ripples of ecstasy shimmer across their surface; the …

Footprints in the Himalayas

The crest above the grassy plains dominates the outlook; its raw-boned peaks threatening to pierce the very fabric of the sky, as beneath its jutting crown mislaid senses of distant lands lie buried beneath the snowpack:   The fabricated whispers of spinning jennies cast as muted echoes in the ice, …

Arctic Acoustics

At the top of the world we slowly cast our sonic nets beneath the waves, in search of the secrets that these soundscapes suppress. Spectrograms oscillate with aquatic effervescence, mimicking every muffled sigh that reverberates beneath pristine, crystal waters.   Dancing across the pixels, a medley of melodies slowly reveal …

An Entanglement of Whales

Basking in the tainted gloss of west coast rays, these once frigid waters overflow with sustenance, enticing anchovies to cavort along the coastlines; their corporeal writhing a carnal call to hungry, ancient giants.   Upstream, waves of heat weave blobs of warmth into toxic bouquets, their ghastly aromas leeching beneath …
