Weird Poetry

Martian mineral formed by ancient ice blankets,

“aeolian dust

and acidic atmospheric aerosols”.

“Aolian dust” sounds like glorified dust blown about by wind.


I am only able to appreciate the alliteration of this sentence from the literary researchers

As I possess but a faint inkling of what any of it means…


I managed to deduce the following:

Jarosite is a mineral,

An off-putting yellowish brown mineral,

Formed by the marriage of dust and ice

Found not only on Mars

But in Antarctica too,



Maybe water

On Mars…

At some point.




*** Ever fall down a web-browsing rabbit hole? ***

*** I’m sorry but someone has to say it…. Jarosite is an ugly mineral. ***
