Today is World Poetry Day.

The day is designated by the UN to celebrate verse in all its forms. Whether song, haiku, or rhyme, words are written to make a statement. They are the basis of oral traditions and can communicate values across cultures and centuries. What better way to combine a bit of 'art & science' than a haiku written by one of the 'original thinkers' at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory viewing our neighbor planet with an Ode to Mars:

                          Rust red surface

                Cratered, layered, rocky plains

                Someday we'll touch Mars

by Tracey Darin, JPL Systems Engineer.
