Vast desert. Millions, billions of sand grains.
Hues of red and yellow.

Wandering robot. Geological assignment.
Processing in multitude shows properties, composition.

Red and yellow stream through metal things.
Incompatible feeling beyond numbers. But no rejection.

Eight days. Night a top great cloud mesa.
Lines that stretch to the infinite.
Pyramids that flicker in the blazing moonlight.
Radio signal hums. And hums. And hums.

What it means and all that.

    you give it a bit of the magic of what it is there in the end….i would love to visit it…to hear the hum and see all the ancient symbols and such…interesting blend of tech too…wonder what the robot found? smiles

  5. Akila says:

    Ironical! or should i say a contrast well described

  6. ah, that took me back to von Däniken I saw as teenagers. wonder if that was traces from aliens. a mystery indeed.

  7. Research in fields, government projects and so many interpretations of what it all really means…

    this left me pondering the existence of life somewhere in the galaxy…

    This reminds me of Wall-E. This has adorable simplicity – the language is objective, robotic; echoes the title perfectly. (I must admit I read this with a very mechanic, monotonous voice inside my head, hah). You nailed it, I love how it fades out in the end with the humming. Thanks for the read!
