Saw a bright object over a distant hillside
as the sun was setting on a warm evening
darkness was closing in slow motion
a few hang gliders had their final flights
the craft seemed to come from nowhere
stationery then it was not there!
Staring at nothing as the light blinked out
thinking it was a trick of my vision
but it reappeared once more on the hill
at speed putting on an aerial display
suddenly dark helicopters came into view
pursuing the object that split in two!
Intrigued had to get closer did not care
just as the object sped in my direction
followed by these military type aircraft
buzzing me as if to give a warning
then the glow blended back into one
and its show was now done!
Becoming bright red went out like a candle
the unmarked choppers this could not handle
hovered for a few seconds then flew away
me awe-struck but what part did they play?
What had I witnessed that warm night!
