And the Last Sentinel Fell

the brown expanse opened into an eternal stretch. swirling sheets of coarse, hot sand and dust endlessly block the searing rays of the red star. most of the time the eye finds its uselessness. yonder, a towering, parched and grainy mountain casts a gloomy patch of shadow over the restless plain beside it. at its foot curls a rotting tree stump trying to ward off the brown particles that endlessly blanket it.
