An emotional planet. It was almost as if it knew a great drama was concluding, it’s final scene about to take place. Humans had left thousands of years ago. The flora and fauna gradually died out as Earth’s orbit around the sun decayed.
Now the barren, scorched planet, ten minutes away from colliding with its star, entered its last throes of expansion. The incredible light and heat were taken by poetic spectators light-years away as a once-great planet’s will to make a last bold statement.
"I burn with the pride of a mother, my life’s work complete. Farewell."
