Advent's Deep Space Stimulation

Ms. Real Time,
an often stimulating Taoist,
but sometimes, admittedly, not so much,
more of a cannibal really
on her dark time of before and after
her Taoist stimulating period
if you know what I mean.

Anyway,
Ms. Real Time
invited her Prime Co-Partner,
Mr. Deep Space,
more of a revolutionary-historic Christian
kind of a co-redemptive guy,
to remember intimate conversations
of too long ago.

"We used to have those long quiet whispers
both before and after our commingling
about who we would be
how we would become that
and why.
Why was where our logical stories
always seductively began and romantically ended
forever Real Time after birthing Deep SpaceTime."

"Then you wanted to argue about names
for this future Earthly embryo,
I suggested YinYin,
but you demanded Eco-Messiah.
Do you remember that?"

Some of it, admitted Space,
my memory begins where ours ends,
but I do recall our co-messianic resolution
to Advent the Birth of Yang Co-Messiah
by giving Birth to Christ as yinyin messianic,
as John baptized Earth's waters
in advent of our Nazarene.

"Which reminds me," throbbed Real Time
"we need to focus our Advent of DeComposition
on our North Star as RNA-ProGenitor
of YangThymine+/YinCytosine(-,-)
to orthopraxis our permacultural birth of language
biological enculturation as fractal-logical culture-syntax
four prime seasons of Earth and human life,
from winter of Transitional DeComposing ReGeneration
to spring of Co-Messianic Birth
into summer of Our Most Beautiful Community and World,
sustaining Fall's SpaceTime universal embryos
into future's bicamerally balancing eco-logos,
hydrogen with nitrogen
oxygen breathing into dialectical carbon-bases,
regenerating all these RealTime memories
of sensual experience as evolutionary story."

Deep Space bore down on Language's Advent,
a dialect of Earth's temporal-bound logic,
ecologic.
Spatial
dialectical
co-arising experience of health v. pathology
is rationed analogic,
logical and rationally balanced
both deductive with inductive RealTime value-as-proportional-balance
optimized tuition,


S/he needed to give birth as NOW
to Yang as Yin-squared spacetime ecologic bicamerality.

"Not quite yet, dear" slow-grows Real Time's reminder
"you believe in 12 days and nights
to give birth to Christ's Co-Mass Ergodic Balance,
don't you?"

Something like that,
it's difficult to retain full-octave Left-Right focus
with all this cognitively dissonant lack of love
still floating through Earth's synergetically cooperative culture.

"Hmmm. Push in a little closer.
Baby needs a full-body rub."

Ms. Time
are you flirting with me?

"Only if you want to play the role
of Mr. Deep Space."

It is not your temporal language
about dialectical experience
that is "logical" or "illogical",
but our co-arising birth
into dialectically cooperative,
and, yes, I do mean less cognitive dissonance
between us is something I RealTime need from you,
bicameral mindbody as timespace experience
of health v. pathology.

"I love your synergetic formal love talk,
baby,
all that naturally rich organic
fertile
life-birthing regenerative mythic-logic."

I think the Quads are coming into alignment,
little fold with re-fold,
implicating pre-fold predicting re-fold closure,
birthing down into co-gravitational wonder.

"Your Deep Spatial language
of Zero-Soul EcoLogic,
in 4-RealPrimeTimeSpace
seasonal
temporal
spaciated
dialectical Yang-EcoMessiah harmonics
feels like climatic edge of Advent (0)Mega..."

Our ecoconsciousness spacetime point
beyond language
bearing into,
struggling into diastatic logic
of bicameral co-incidental 
healthy-fertile 
eco-messianic experience,
both positive and negative
co-mentoring.

Father Time's Reprise

Fr. Time, thanks for coming back again today.

Well now, you know I always have plenty of time
for Dr. Glory!

Thank you for that rather cloying and creepy response.
I talked to FireGod a few days ago, 
were you aware of that?

Yes, of course.
He and EarthGaia know all about each other.
Although not on the same page,
they are each appositional pages
in the same gospel choirbook,
so to run on with too many words once again....
Where am I?

It sounds like you are aware of FireGod's agenda,
why he's all fired up
to worship a God of ReGenerative Healthy Time.
Is this the God you worship, Fr. Time?

Worship is more EarthGaia's department, actually.
I guess I would say I do my co-gravitating balance best
to continue perpetuating God
as Nutritious Co-Elational Prime Relationship.

Relationship with?...
Relationship with what or whom?
Is your God a verb
without subject or object?

No.
A verb with Yang languaged subjects
unfolding yin-dipolar co-arising objectives,
health,
life,
re-creation,
self-perpetuating 4D bicameral polycultural systems.

Fr. Time, does it bother you
that you seem to be too self-involved
for the rest of us?
Are you worshiping yourself
in some narcissistic whirlwind of nothing important?

No, again,
co-gravitating time as co-arising space
balancing WinWin ecohealth
is not worshiping God
although it could be divinely humane
if we could all help each other's bicameral time
feel and grow and become
and evolve more therapeutically balanced.

Let me try this one last time.
Not as God-loving Gaia
and not as Fear-filling Fire God,
but as these Two,
Right with Left,
Past with CoPresent synergetic Future,
who or what is God to BiLateral Time?

BiCameral CoArising TimeEqualness.
I could say that.
I did say that.
But, saying this changes God
into language that could not quite be truly just and right and good 
and fully beautiful.
A song perhaps,
or, better, a dance.
God is my 4-steps of dialectic revolutionary freedom
to choose regenerative health over pathology
by setting aside all that is not love becoming
eco-self-conscious elational-correlational
co-empathic time
within and without our selves.

Still doesn't have much swing to it.

You think my timing is off?

I think your balance is off.

No, that couldn't be,
or ever become true.

So you say.

So I am that I was.

Not that one again.

Time repeats.

Oh, here we go...

Mutually CoPresent.

Fr. Time...?

More of a Father/Queen Ego/Eco BiCameral Time
TransParent YHWH dancing dream.

God is your Heavenly Dream?

And BeLoved Community Earth.

Dancing together?

Kind of a jazzy swing and dance,
lots of spinning and drums,
and stretching,
don't forget to stretch
physically and metaphysically together.
It feels so good
once it stops disforming history.

Fr. Time, are you still with me here?

Now I am, if you are too.

Is there a Queen Time?
Because, frankly, I feel sorry for her,
if there is.

No, I'm bilaterally co-gravitational;
everybody knows my self-progenitive creation story.

Oh, well, thank you, again, Fr. and Mother Time
for another lovely non-dialogue
here at our PermaCultural Climate Conference.
Can't tell you how much we enjoy 
your timelessly vacuous messages.

Think nothing of it.
Do it all the time.

OK, you're doing that thing again,
when I try to say thanks for the interview
and close
but you have to get in one last self-referencing plug.
You are such a shameless hustler!

Just half the time.

Goodnight.

Night...

Is s/he really gone?

[Still here, now...]

Nothing in Excess

Nothing in Excess
(the second Delphic maxim of Apollo)



A mixture of the brute and the divine
                                                Man is,
That’s why the strife in his soul never
                                                    Ends,
As the eternal adversaries for superiority
                                                     Strive,
In the depths of everyone’s divided
                                                    Heart,
                        ----------

The brute:
Limited by the dimensions of space and
                                                           Time,
Intimidated by the oppressive notion of cruel
                                                    Alienation,
Frightened by the savage idea of inglorious 
                                                    Temporality,                                                         
And horrified by the torturous thought of merciless
                                                          Mortality,
Eager to pull man down to the material world
                                                          Desires,
And with the heavy chains of bodily pleasures
                                                            Him to tie!
                       ----------
The divine:
Unrestricted by the dimensions of space and
                                                                Time,
Animated by the lofty idea of unity with
                                                           The ONE,
Strengthened by the noble thought of clement
                                                              Eternity
And exalted by the gracious conception of 
                                             Comforting immortality,
To raise Man up to the immaterial heavens
                                                             Yearns,
And with the purified delights of spirit him,
                                                      To nourish!
                       -----------

When the ruthless brute, victorious from the
                                                  Battle emerges
And body’s barbaric-cry of victory
                                                        Shouts,
Benign spirit, inside the prison of here and now
                                                             Is found ,
From where, silently, the devastation of divinity,
                                                             Observes.
                       -----------

When eternal spirit triumphant out the war 
                                                          Appears,
And the illumination of the soul, jubilantly,
                                                         Proclaims,
The perishable brute, even from its basic needs,
                                                         Is deprived,
Thus, slowly, painfully and persistently is fainting, 
                                                                      Away.
                      -------------

Only when the brute and the divine a truce
                                                          Declare
And their powers under the banner of universal
                                                        Reason unite
Rendering to each other, at the proper time, 
                                                  Its equal share,
Harmony is established in our souls and the
                                                   Human is born!

Long poem by Gerald Dillenbeck | Details |

On Being Here Now

Our body is only a cloak,
seek the one who has dressed you,
heed not the dress.
Rumi

My form dresses our shared purpose,
I seek this SuperEco who has formed our cooperative
and synergetic vocational meaning,
not my ego's magically imagined id-entity.

Yet I remain distracted and confused
by this magic illusion of constancy that grows "me."
I watch with egocentric fascination and delight,
alarm and dismay,
applauding my own virtuoso comedic protagonist bright sight
for creating personal drama from epic opera's stage.

My body forms "self" comprehension
that our integrated ecologic
understands regenerative intuition
magic and spells
alchemy and Golden Ratios
as our eternal 0-summed Here and Now unfolding
karmic grace
evolving each natural system's spiritual reincarnation
of time's coded cultural narrative string
back through space,
forward toward our future generations.

Midway means nothing to infinity.
Rumi

Here and Now comprehends eternal form
as spacetime function
unraveling permacultural implications
back through languaged information
logistical trees of reverse hierarchies
tipping boundary Trim Tabbing poignant dissonance
midway resolving
co-gravitational resonating
redeeming
repurposing
rehabilitating
SuperEco-therapeutic love of integrity 
Tao Prime Relationship:
my identity is to SuperEco
as Yang longs for Yin's concaving  warm wombed embrace,
as +/-(0)-summed personal investment,
economic purpose,
evolves +1.00% QBit ecosystems logical,
optimizational regenerative, 
designated development
of co-symbiotic evolution.

My (0)-balancing body's informating economy reveals
our co-arising past with future 
positive CQI ecotherapeutic trend and story,
as well as negative, nondually dark,
narrative strings and cultural tales,
polycultural communities co-mentoring permacultural humane design
resolving Primal Resonance with Original Intent,
eco-centric "Self" identity with SuperEco's
Fractal-Unitarian Tao Metasystem of Universal Co-Comprehensive Balancing ntelligence,
or Taoist UnitarianYin--UniversalismYang,
should we need a shorter label,
and another "ism,"
then Zeroism may culturally evolve just as well,
where science rejoins religion
wonderously prehending this sacred magic we are Now
predicting our Beloved Climax Community future.

My body comprehends this convex cloak
seeking SuperEco concaved within to undress this ego,
to heed our Elder natural naked systems
Here and Now regeneratively encoding
resolving
enlightening
transcending incommensurable naively intuited paradigms and language.

My co-prehended form resonates ecological function and design,
like hopeful hypothermia absorbing a warm bathing womb
to give birth to our emergent Beloved Community
of Mutual Redeemers 
mentoring economic ecologic.

Absorb rich Dark Holed composting primal relationship
of Yang-space with Yin-Time
to radiate SuperEco's brightest light together.

To increase comprehensive harmonic depth
turn off the lights,
extraction of fading natural resources, 
learn to cooperatively dream of full-moon nights
and rainbows of partly-cloudy sun-fueled days.

Bodies
with bicamerally balancing brains
are Here and Now (0)-centric information
pointing toward SuperEco's prime regenerative relationship.

Form greets Function
as space meets time
as Here redeems Now,
karmic graceful gift of Earth's Eco-centric co-presence.

Mutual Messiahs

Who's vision are you unfolding for whom?

Are you aware you carry a basket of bread
on your head
and still beg at every door? (Rumi)

You love nature.
Like bread, Earth's nature feeds you
and, like yeast, absorbs you,
is that of which you are made,
and making,
and resolve to eternally create and recreate,
if only you could.

But, you can and you are
and the manna in your head already knows
healthy yeast  redeems regenerationally
diastatically incarnational,
with smooth-souled omnicoherence,
comprehensively balancing deduction with induction,
eco-confluent paradigms and dreams and language
and permaculture,
ecological teleology systematically grows panentheistic,
polytheistic,
polynomial,
polypathic,
polycultural,
balancing cooperative economies with networking political vocations
to permanently eco-logicize Earth.

This is your Day, your EcoTribal Self
our EcoLogic metaculture and Transhistory,
our EcoTherapy synergy,
tipping toward balancing points and principles
of blinding spiritual intuition with restrained scientific deduction,
harmonizing Left-brained language
with Right-brained confluent v. dissonant inductive awareness
of this bicameral basket on our head
as our balancing supereco and my id-entity
engaging your ego/eco balancing praxis,
whether hope-filled or hopeless,
triumphant or despairing,
you know this already,
throughout this manna that is your nesting culture,
decomposing through unraveling death's long post-millennial process
to regenerate as
"redistributed [positive-therapeutic] subfunctions
of Other" informing ecosystems. (B. Fuller)

Born of stardust,
messiahs mutually mentoring
our pilgrimage toward Earth's starlight;

e-squared function = c-crystal (cubed)
subatomic polyculture,
waiting behind each begging door
for you to return Other's cooperatively gravitating namaste
mutual unfold.

Optimized Living Systems are to metaphysical teleology
as ecosystems are to physically regenerating ("special case") economies,
as EcoTherapy informs design, intention, empirical research,
learning and consciousness,
love, and active peace, and justice,

and RNA self-optimizing fractally-dynamic information
QBit Quirky Byting Octaves
ionic and ergodically balancing value systems.

Your bicameral basket holds no non-polynomial information
because this is an oxymoron,
we already intuitively know everything and all not-thing metaphysical
as diverse resolutions of Prime +/- (0)-synced Relationship,
polynomial information negatively correlates wild binomial yeast
soaring surf of time's double-bound equinox divide.

Please continue unfolding our permacultured cooperative co-arising political vision,
mutual investment
biosystemic and ecosystemic and information  binary-network systemic
and stop begging from competitively unbalanced economists,
it's just not dignified,
or anything close to wildly, creatively, fun.

Time's Full Enlightenment

"Teachings of enlightenment, whether traditional [regenerational, creation stories] or evolutionary, present us with a unique [ecological] way of thinking about and [comprehensively] understanding who [and why] we are. What makes an enlightened perspective different [and healthier] from any other perspective is that it emphasizes the significance of those [therapeutic] dimensions of self that are [exegetically] non-relative, or "absolute."  (Andrew Cohen, "Evolutionary Enlightenment")

[Absolute = Zero-Centric bicamerally balancing Time 
in 3-dimensional Exterior Landscape articulation 
confluent(+)/dissonant(-,-) with 
2-binomial dimensional Interior Bicamerally NormNatured Landscape]

Others have claimed our economic
and ecologically political and sacred purposes
are beauty and kindness,
cooperative-nature and grace,
and good cause/effect karma.

All true
because each of these is healthier than 
ugly and mean,
self-competitively clumsy,
and the bad karma places and spaces and laces of time
we have perpetuated upon Earth,
Earth's RNA Tribes,
and most relentlessly on our over-competing spiritualized,
and under-cooperative naturalized,
health-optimizing
ego/eco bicameral selves.

AnthroLife's meaning is therapeutic purpose.
ReGenerative Life's purpose
emerges toward optimizing health.

FullLiving Love is bicameral optimizing
CoOperating Presence.
FullEviling Death is absence of bicamerally cooperative Present,
no longer biosystemic ego-functional,
no longer co-arising identity,
but releasing into prime-elational becoming
of bilateral Time.

Time is forwardly Positive-Elational.
Time's bilateral nature disrupts into reverse
within bicamerally metaphysical Interior images.

This Internal Ground of Time's Being,
emerges elational,

Fr Time's Bicameral Homily

Time echoes and resonates without language,
invests in green triumphal backdrop,
below misty blue sky,
spotted
blossomed in yellows and spindling purples
blues and flaming orange,
fragile moments of fully fertile tone
bilateral shapes and colors,
flagrant erections of next generation's timely hope
for full-hued polylife as health regeneration, 
perennially emerging through fields, 
green-network enraptured
Earth-toning soil and rocks
and weathered blackwet-stretching darker barks
back further through time's concavely ringing recessing core.

This diastatic summer's newer time full color;
Elder tunes dressed in fallen grays and browns,
wilting from climate fading memory
into dusk's deeper hue and cry.

Time's newer language
laughs through AnthroCamera children
camping near a still-slogging toxic river,
flowing toward surfing, sometimes sulking, Sound
from mountains of older swaying,
silently caressing,
singing tines of trees,
ripe summer leaves.

Newer times hum industry
in jetted skies
through rumbling valleys of human enterprise,
competing rhythms and climax changing patterns
swooshing lanes of hurry fueled tombs
rushed toward some end of prime timelessness,
permaculturally planned, 
yet politically and economically unprioritized.

Drumming cooperative heartbeat
surfing co-arising breath
occasional quaking tummy and head rumbles,
Elder tones of humane space
thundering through subliminal Right-mindbody octaves
of timeless unrolling elational memory.

ReGenerating Angel's Syndrome,
new time smells green fragrant,
older organics fuel richer pungent payment
down into Earth's old-tinged infrastructure,
roots hunting Truth's mysteriously flowing RNA estuaries
floating broken platters of EarthTime's universe creation,
rumbling bicamerally regenerating thunder
warning of ancient slow-aptic- through synaptic-timed lightening.

Capturing Time's enrapturing voices and visions and climatic verbs,
EcoPresence Language
flowing through silent space,
fractal-faced and paced race
toward co-arising spacetime Prime Relationship,
BiCameral Time's Interior Eco-LandPlace
echoing Exterior Syntaxing CoGravitational Time;
all else "evil" remainder
fades into PreMillennial cognitive/affective dissonance.

ReGenerative Time's Language speaks in sacred logos 
therapeutic flow and co-arising healthy function.

Peace and Namaste

As Tao's Time-Bodhisattvas, 
we co-arise out and up and forth
toward our 
EcoBalancing 
ReGenerating 
ZenZero-Attachment/Aversion 
Basic Sacred CoPresent 
BiCamerally CoMentoring:

InFormationalYang Polynomial Universe
ConVexed OVER ConCaving
Unitarian Not-Not-Polynomial Double-Bound YinYin

Win-Win RealTime PoliEconormal CoElational+ Landscapes.

Congregational Response:

May Time's EcoTransParent Presence be you,
as "We".

Pretty Things

Your face is what
becomes my addiction.
I see it in every minute
and each second I am living.
You're all I'm getting
The only topic written down...
It's like sight has become sound.

Your name is the reason that I 
breathe
It's the waking breath in me
All my heart and body needs.
And I...
feel the road getting tough because 
of distance
without the loving kisses
Everything that we are missing now..
But I promise it will all work out...
Just give a little more time
and keep me on your mind, like I do 
you.
Because all that's on mine is when I 
get to you..
It'll be so beautiful...
So beautiful...
So beautiful....

Those pretty things
that people do.
Is all I want to do with you.
These days bring rain
These nights bring rings
We talk about these pretty things.
Your pretty smile, your lovely mind,
This pretty life of yours and mine...
It's all I'm calling out for in my 
dreams...
Your pretty face and all these pretty 
things...

I know it's hard 
through all the space and time,
But we don't have to wait forever
It's just a storm we have to weather
until the day that you are mine...
Whatever else is whatever...
just as long as we're together
Making our way to each other's 
moon.
And we'll be home soon, love...
We'll be home soon...

(Those pretty things
that people do.
Is all I want to do with you.
These days bring rain
These nights bring rings
We talk about these pretty things.)

I can't wait to see your face when I 
wake
But these miles do not hear me
To not have you near me, is...
Just a little more than I can take...
Because this place is just a place
until I see your smiling face...

(Your pretty smile, your lovely mind,
This pretty life of yours and mine...
It's all I'm calling out for in my 
dreams...
Your pretty face and all these pretty 
things...)

Your pretty smile, Your lovely mind.
Is so much more, than space and 
time.
I feel you out there, keep you with 
me.
Hoping these days pass quite quickly.
And though apart we have to be 
(right now, right now, right now!...)
With you is where I'd rather be..
(I'd rather be, I rather be!...)

Those pretty things
that people do.
Is all I want to do with you.
These days bring rain
These nights bring rings
We talk about these pretty things.
Your pretty smile, your lovely mind,
This pretty life of yours and mine...
It's all I'm calling out for in my 
dreams...
Your pretty face and all these pretty 
things...

So keep me close to you, my love.
Keep holding on to all that's us...
I see your face in every room...
I promise you that..
we'll be home soon...
And no matter what tomorrow 
brings...
What we have...
is the prettiest of things...

Eyes of the Sky

Eyes of the Sky

Forgotten moon
Time says it will all be over soon
Keep your wavelengths in tune
Conscious manipulation spreading doom
Earth, Moon, Sun
But we no longer live as one

Unaware of the stare
I stroll down stairs
both ancient and cracked.
 A tall, fair maiden leads me to the back
Of my brain, where the thoughts drift
Then emotions lift

The subtle, cool breeze nips
against my back
What you call the moon
Is the luminous body that looms
Outside of dark, damp burial tombs
Anticipating an attack, it sat
Death creeping the streets again
in shades of black
If I’m the fool, then you are the magician wearing the pointy gold hat.

I am the light
Sitting illustrious and bright
Creating a holographic spectrum
Over the hollow sphere called night
Always observing, though its disturbing
Its burns bring pain forever lurching
In this struggle I am searching
Fighting the Leviathan
With these words spitting fire at men
Fire burning up liquid magma – helium and hydrogen
Merging minerals and chemical
 Volcanoes bubbling beneath the skin
Electrons and protons, shake from the photons
Flowing out from atoms
The beast within is hovering,
While the earth was mothering
Its not a dream I’m seeing
Spreading the heat of fear
Through the hearts beating and unbelieving.
The winged thing spilling
Energy into the oceans filling
the dragon I blast past you
with words singing from
The tower bell is ringing
Arrows fly like sparrows
Working for the pharaohs
To stop the exodus
Writing the destiny in the tarots
With the strike of a fist
Create struggle for the hero’s
Who rose from the zeros
Scorching, burning, torching you all as your foraging
Solar flare heading towards you is aborting
Your still falling
While my chalice is toasting
You’re all roasting
From this yellow circle,
Multi-pointed ball
A mind so tall,it makes you feel small
Now run, hide or crawl
This is the last call
No matter how big
More vast is the pervasive mass
In the day light,
The inner eye white


Radiating light
Like heat seeking missiles before flight
Reflections so bright
Wide eyed and awake
Absorbing into my brain
Too much visions driving me insane
This light pollution must be tamed
Ordained to contain
Even in the darkness
I remain unchanged, unchained
I want to look up and see stars, not just planes
After a swig of the flask
I fell to the ground
And clasped onto the grass
Kissed feet with the colour of brass
Put on, take off the mask
Eclipse,
The day shifts
Into a dark mist of mass
From the energy of a gas

Long poem by Dane Ann Smith-Johnsen | Details |

The UFO at Cary Forest

Nestled among the trees in a primitive campsite,
A cub scout and his mother were on their third camp-out.
The tent was pitched; double foil wrapped food was cooked just right.
The young campfire cook gave his skills a great workout.

In the past they had stayed there several days at a time.
Driving through the forest just the mom and her young boy.
Thinking about those days brings back memories sublime.
It was a lot of work, but brought them so much joy.

Nights were spent listening to the serenading bullfrog.
At dawn, she photographed wildlife while he made bird-calls.
One morning when they came around the bend in the fog,
A long-necked majestic doe stood tall and enthralled.

The angle was such that she could not get a good shot.
So, she handed him her Cannon; he aimed, then, clicked.
It would be days prior to seeing the picture he got.
She and her son took pleasure in the woodlands frolicked.

In the hours of darkness they finished playing cards.
Their lantern was glowing; it was time to go to sleep.
Outside there was a whirring they could not disregard.
The mother turned out the light; whispered, “Don't make a peep!”

Her heart was pounding faster and her eyes opened wide.
She was afraid to move, but tried her best to be brave.
She unzipped the tent slowly and took a look outside.
The unlikely sight she saw gave her heart a shock wave.
 
Up in the sky was a circle of lights… humongous!
The outer ones were orange and the inner ones flashed white.
The sound was so loud that soon the boy became anxious.
With a quiet hush she said, “We're going to be alright.”

All she could think about was fear and their abduction.
Teenage daughters, not camping, needed her to survive.
She was so terrified her mind could hardly function.
There was nothing she could do to get out of there alive.

Would sharp-witted life forms from outer space understand?
She had no choice but try; inside she shed silent tears.
Begging aloud to the alien craft, words unplanned.
Daughters, with no one to tend them would struggle for years.

When she explained their situation, the noise ceased quickly.
She peeked outside again to see only stars in the sky.
He, now a man, was not allowed to look out…hazy.
She thanks God for the night the aliens went bye-bye.

P.S. Years later, she saw the same craft in NASA space photos listed as something not 
seen before…unidentified!  When she went to show her husband, the picture had 
“disappeared!”
