Parallel!

The day was bright the sea calm

holidaymakers and locals

enjoying the long sandy beach

in the sky-high clouds

started to mask the hot sunlight

for a while was a blight!

 

Looking up they beheld a marvel

on a cloud a city

floating huge skyscrapers visible

silently moving by

was this a parallel world they saw

as they stared in awe!

 

More gathered to witness this event

never before seen

by the throng on the golden sands

was it an illusion

from whispers to a crescendo grew

in that shimmering hue!

 

Then the images faded from their gaze

disappearing into clouds

no tall buildings were on this coastline

what had filled their vision

the answers could not be found here

a conundrum was clear!

 

Had they been privileged with insight

or spectacular fantasy of delight?

 

The mystery has never been solved!

Direct Vision!

Warm so peaceful few clouds in the sky

crickets creating the only sound

the moon shone you could feel the heat

relaxing upon a sun lounger

riveted by the number of stars in view

realized her husband was overdue!

 

Almost falling asleep the wine glass fell

made her jump and sit up

noticed a growing object in her vision

its shape forever changing

colours of varied degrees of illumination

a spectacular presentation!

 

First sighting a spectacle that was awesome

twisting turning coming to a halt

never before seen such a dazzling display

as more just came into sight

soon neighbours were gathered transfixed

opinions on objects mixed!

 

With a captive audience and intense stares

the object seemed to come nearer

its vast size visible but no audible noise

except from gasps of the crowd

then the craft silently accelerating ascended

into the heavens blended!

 

Authorities denied any knowledge of the sighting!

 

The Foureyed Poet.

Base!

The soldier sat on duty in the guard hut

trying to stay awake

certainly would be in trouble if caught

this a classified base

where many strange items were stored

he was safe they assured!

 

A large object had been delivered recently

covered in tarpaulin sheets

by hooded figures in unmarked uniforms

in the night brought it in

remembering seeing lights moving about

taught not to feel doubt!

 

He knew it was another craft from the stars

this was not the first delivered

to this covert military facility hidden here

out in the barren desert

far away from the public’s inquisitive stare

and media who were well aware!

 

Alone with only his thoughts for company

daring not to speculate

what was far below the ground in storage

or the research being done

he was a private in the military police unit

to protect at all costs his remit!

 

Tonight had a gut feeling it would not be quiet

there had been much activity

preparing for the first perimeter patrol an alert

received an urgent message

on the radio the main fence had been breached

for his side arm he reached!

 

As he prepared to go the rest of the team arrived

in their pick up trucks

just as an explosion came from the base offices

that lead to the facility

glowing objects zoomed in from the dark skies

the action a complete surprise!

 

Within one minute reached the reported section

the ground on fire but no tracks

even more military personnel now assembled

word came of  ferocious action

in the huge laboratories and hangars beneath

the innocent sprawling heath!

 

As they raced towards the unknown enemy

frantic voices warned stay back

as a massive explosion ripped the site apart

brining them to sudden stop

from out of the flames pulsating  orbs flew

making a spectacular view.

 

They were not fired on which made no sense

an odd sort of alien  invasion

even though missiles were quickly deployed

though none actually hit

the soldier wondered what had just happened

was this a start or the end?

 

Instead of fighting their task became rescue

and evacuating survivors

followed by a major clamp down of the site

information was very sparse

but he heard it was a breakout from within

of creatures with grey skin!

 

What secrets was he part of hiding here

this was the first time he felt fear!

 

The Foureyed Poet

 

 

 

Space Station!

It was supposed to be just another routine shift

on the orbiting space station

as it majestically circled the earth far below

with spectacular surface views

the astronauts within prepared for a heavy day

unaware of what was on the way!

 

Instruments indicated systems were functioning

nothing had been detected

ground control contacted to tell them an object

had been picked up on radar

approaching their position on a collision course

no idea what it was or its source!

 

What concerned them it had just suddenly appeared

to rapid for a comet or asteroid

thoughts loomed of alien activity always a possibility

plans had always been prepared

closer now communications were severed with earth

the escape pod broke from its berth!

 

The crew of eight men and women totally stranded

as the shape loomed into sight

blocking out the intense sunlight then a sudden jolt

vibration as if being drawn

towards this unidentified mass outside the thin hull

as pain filled each skull!

 

From earth’s ground control they could only listen

and view the images on monitors

revealing to them it was a spaceship of colossal size

uncertain at what could be done

if missiles were fired it could create a counter stroke

no way could they provoke!

 

Helpless the object retreated into the depths of space

yet knowing it would return

so far the situation had been censored from the media

how long could it be contained

without knowledge of what events were formulating

earth’s leaders forced into waiting!

 

But for years in secret invasion scenarios created

in anticipation of such a day

these plans were put into action military on alert

for civilisations destruction

limited information was given to the baying media

so as not to cause fear!

 

The wait for the forthcoming invasion had begun!

 

The Foureyed Poet.

The Believers

The believers sat in their bunkers

or on a high point.

Waiting for the spectacular end

that never did occur.

Sure it was correctly translated

feeling sullen and deflated.

 

The majority had taken no notice

carrying on as before.

Our climate was slowly changing

nature ignored mankind!

Scientist unable to stop the process

had they accelerated the mess?

 

The believers carried on their wait

in case they’d mistaken the date!

 

The Foureyed Poet.
