UFO Poem

A Poem by Greg Skura
"

Base on the short story Distant Past

"

Late afternoon on a sunny summer day
Sun rays on our house in a certain way
That a long shadow could be cast
Something happened in my past
Through the bathroom window space
From an old memory my mind displaced
When I was sitting self hipnotized
The feeling of another presence caught my eye
I turned to see a pair of eyes
Widened with a look of surprise
On a long sharp tapered face
It moved so quickly from the window space
And a long shadow I did see
Shaped like a bat it seemed to me
I was sitting in the bathroom all alone
Heard screaming from out front of our home
"What is it? in the sky?what's in the sky? I don't know?"
"Quick get the kids inside!"
The whole experience left me mesmorised
We never discussed what happened then
Years had passed it became way back when
In a deep sleep experienced recently
In the dream it was reveiled to me
To ask my sister on that day what she did see
She said something hovering over the trees
Adrenalin racing she could not believe her eyes
Colored lights shiny and enormus in size
When she knew the children were safe
Her curiosity could not make her wait
And as she ran to the garden gate
She started to question her what was her fate
Her delight quickly turned to fright
She locked up the house and kept us in sight
She thanked me for making her realize
Her nightmares for life had been caused by this night
And as a child I would sit there and ponder
That feeling you sense
When you feel the presence of another.

I see not too many people have clicked on this. It begs the question... is this just an exercise in poetry or was it meant to capture/express something from personal experience? It seems less a poem and more a demure way of expressing a certain type of experience that is difficult to share due to a lack of shared context. So, am I even in the ball park in understanding this one?
