New Poetry: Ten Martian Haiku

I am starting to think, and possibly speak, in haiku now as I have become more and more fascinated with this simple yet profound form of poetry.  I had originally sat down to compose poetry ala the Imagist school, having been inspired by H. D.'s The Pool (offered by Poets.org's Poem-A-Day and reviewed in Songs of Eretz on January 13, 2013).  However, I noticed that my initial effort had seventeen syllables and was about Mars.  Nine more Martian haiku followed.  Ideally, I'd like to market them as a set, but that may be difficult...
