Not Expected!

Not expected there was a month to go

all was so perfect until

a fit they said blackout could not wake

aroused in the labour ward

worried faces what was happening cried

thinking her baby had died!

 

No time to think so much for her to absorb

had an epidural for the pain

doctors and nurses were giving full attention

blood taken and pressure to

scared at what was occurring so very fast

on her life the shadow cast!

 

The baby was delivered by Cesarian surgery

there was the fear of no oxygen

while mum was unconscious so intubated

and ventilated taken to scuba

the pediatric intensive care hope fading

all the family emotions cascading!

 

Tests were carried out the prognosis poor

through misfortune little hope

physically so perfect hard to understand

removed from ventilator

no more assistance must breathe unaided

in disbelief emotions pervaded!

 

Days passed she did breath on her own

hope was restored for a while

though doctors said there was no chance

and it could be weeks or months

so together a plan to give intensive care

with that special love would share!

 

To this day tiny Jade is her name

in this world does remain!

Silently!

Silently the danger swiftly approached

gathered speed as it careered onward

many eyes through telescopes observed

could see the object coming this way

on earth humans continued their folly

disbelieving of what could soon occur

others searched for provisions to hoard

merciless violence then soured!

 

Too many predictions were unfounded

so few thought it would ever be

nothing would change greed still ruled

there could be nowhere for us to flee

darkness despair the disbelief grew

death and horror the only view!

 

No Fresh air sun or sweet singing birds

happy children innocently playing

certain a meteorite was going to collide

ending in terror mankind’s very existence

written its said as an ancient prophecy

as it hurled closer to the earths surface

the few hid in deep secure habitation

no room for most of the population!

 

By a miracle or very poor calculations

it passed by earth at close proximity

a warning how fragile the balance of life

hurtling onward in spaces vast highway

order restored the chaos forgotten

mankind carried on just as rotten!

 

Another chance given for humans to repent

or short reprieve from an inevitable event!

Over Night Stay!

It was a chance sighting for her

passing the quaint pub

returning from a job interview

confident it went well

but it was late and she was tired

yet happy and inspired.

 

Needing to have an over night stay

this was an ideal place

no need to deviate her route home

pulled into the car park

entering within the pubs inner core

on polished wooden floor.

 

The atmosphere serene and quiet

soon reaching the bar

enquired about bed and breakfast

to a nice woman there

who said this service was provided

she’d stay here decided.

 

Plain and simple the rooms unique

four-post beds as well

at that moment felt an odd sensation

had supper and a drink

then went up to retire for the night

now it had become twilight.

 

As she got in the bed an impression

like a person was sitting

to sleepy just settled in soft sheets

turning off the small lamp

from the bathroom a shape emerged

towards her it surged!

 

Giggling heard followed by a soft voice

a cold breeze made her shiver

now somebody was beside her face

a gentle pull of the hair

yet was not afraid a female essence

nothing made any sense!

 

The next morning woke with sunlight

through curtained windows

refreshed showered and dressed

early breakfast and tea

enquired about the room and history

a girl had died who a mystery!

 

Leaving contented at what occurred

a touch on her back

quickly turning nobody was close by

needing to find out why

had she been drawn here truth to seek

a lost spirit trying to speak?

 

She knew there must be a return visit!
