My recollection of that unbelievable incident

on the site of an earth fort.

Deep in the English countryside an event

from then an answer I sought.

Climbing away from the cities and towns

coming gently onto the downs.


Fresh and silent a shimmering haze on the hills

your lungs fill with clean air.

Nobody else was around as dusk approached

walking in space without time.

Beginning to feel light-headed  and chilled

an energy was distilled!


A sensation of floating a vision began to shape

soldiers on horseback and on foot!

Glittering army and flowing deep red long capes

within touching distance.

Romans silently moving in glorious formation

heading to a long passed destination!


As quickly as they had appeared to me gone

back into the past!

Not afraid it was like being in a realistic dream

awaking with a satisfied smile.

Leaving me with an incredible new belief

no need to feel grief.


That maybe there was life beyond this one

living on after death!

Coming back to my daily mundane existence

recounting the images.

That I had truly felt was a real  fulfilling sight

leaving me with such delight!


So much we have yet to learn from our mysterious world.


The Foureyed Poet.
