There’s nothing more I’d love to do,
Than wander far and wide,
My wheels churn up the Martian dust,
Imagine what I’ll find.
My probes dig deep in sand and rock
In search of vital clues,
Historical finds or signs of life,
A hope of one breakthrough.
I’ve far to go, I can’t stay long,
There’s much to discover,
I pass on by a Rover friend,
I’m sure there’ll be another.
Alone on Mars but not for long,
My mission without interference,
Reporting back to friends on Earth
I’m Peripatetic Perseverance.
Happy Monday everyone. I hope you’ve all had a great weekend. The above was my contribution to a Monday Words challenge. The challenge is to use the word in a few sentences of verse or prose, in such a way that the context makes its meaning clear to someone who is unfamiliar with it. It is not sufficient simply to include the word somewhere in your entry without making its meaning understood.
The word for the week was the adjective PERIPATETIC: travelling from place to place, in particular working or based in various places for relatively short periods.
