A Revelation

Shimmering was the air nearby, I know a man who did such descry..'
To point it out after a space.' before he could; things changed apace,

Compressed..? this glistening..' the air more 'white'..?
 Then in a twisting flow, of a flood..?  it did alight..!

The appearance was liquid, filled with shining bright, 
'Alive to forever' such an arresting sight.' 

It chose the hood upon to fall, like water on tin; its noise withal.' 
Displaced the metal, this liquid light, flying forward speed of sight..'

His passenger was of many years, from testing times of strength and fears
An atheist, he knows this well.. He gazed transfixed; to times shrink & swell..'

He wondered did she see or know. but could not turn from what was so..;
A ripple began from the fore, ran to the edge. Then up into the air till 'twas no more.'

Still stunned,from out the corner of his eye, he saw his aunts face heard her low cry  
Saying.'did something hit the car at all.? yet no one was near, & no thing did fall

He wonders still did she see light as well, or only hear & if she did will she then tell.?
Her years are 90 she was sitting bent low, it only fell when He intended to show.'

He keeps his silence..' yet should he ask.? she is old and frail it would be a task
To her son he spoke, he said 3 times I've asked she's vague, she thinks there was something, then says she's not sure..'  

It may be to much for her, let things stay this way..'
