The cat’s purring seemed to get louder
for the first time an irritation
how quiet it had been until that moment
staring through the open window
across open fields and a dirty grey sky
his life slowly ticking by!
Almost in a dream like state became aware
of the patterns in the clouds
that drew his complete attention got up
found himself outside eyes fixed
as a large hole appeared in the formation
that lacked rational explanation!
The centre opened spiraling downwards
from within came a large craft
that hovered while the sky then cleared
just appearing before his eyes
he surveyed no noise could be heard
nothing else nearby stirred!
Cautiously walking down his long garden
it slowly moved upwards
as several small objects seemed to eject
flying in all direction so fast
ascending the clouds opened once more
this time of a wider bore!
Rising into heaven or another dimension
the alien object did transcend
that chilling sensation immersed his being
in his mind biblical passions
of death damnation fire and brimstone
at that moment fearful alone!
Retreating back inside his safe haven
upward once more glanced
there was nothing more to be seen
the familiar purring of his cat
brought sanity to a tortured perception
was there a sinister deception?
From that day his whole attitude to life changed!
