Astrobiology

.
Researchers have found evidence of an existing body of liquid water on Mars. 

. . . (the) principle of “following the water” is key to astrobiology – the study of
potential life beyond Earth. —

now science tells
of a water lake on Mars
seen through algorithmic lenses

so we hear again the Sirens of
first life

we still hope to scratch the itch
imagining its synthesis

we still hope to catch the whale
tormenting us since we turned
from simple  Is  to
……………………………… unknowable

and built a babble tower of
incredible creation tales
full of fire and ice
