I really admire your ability to write short stories! I always feel stumped trying to come up with a way to convey something so powerful in so few words. 
                              Awesome writing, thanks for sharing it.
Excellent entry! Those last two paragraphs are especially powerful. Good luck in the contest!

A great cautionary tale. Let us not leave a string of dead planets in our wake. Who knows, maybe Mars' deserts were caused by us too many ages ago. Good luck in the contest!

A powerful tale. Sinister and devoid of hope. Yet another planet turned desert.
                              
                              Well done.

You had me at Mars....then again at the end... bravo my friend, another triumph.   I just hope this never comes to be, but I fear maybe one day, it could...
