Star Ships A star ship soars through gloaming skies faster than warp speed as it appears to disappear from sight leaving only traces of light in disbelieving blinking eyes that search the skies. The next second those blinking colored lights reappear above the farthest mountain descending beyond sight. That round silent disc is soon joined by several matching more, putting on a light show to defy rational laws of gravity, darting through the dark with such amazing accuracy to boggle the mind at their ability to avoid collision, far surpassing our technical abilities to view them on our meager radar screens with their obvious capabilities to cloak their star ships with superior invisibility. Star ships seem to favor remote mountainous terrain, scarcely populated deserts, or the wide expanse of the oceans where they have been known to plunge into the deep. They are rarely known to land in areas where they may be easily approached by the curious who may become abducted, never to be seen again. twilight twists necks to view sky maneuvers--- sighting star ships 5-10-21 My thanks to this website for this wonderful picture. https://patch.com/new-york/new-york-city/alien-invasion-latest-2020-threat-ufo-sightings-shoot-ny *I didn't get my contest entry finished in time to enter it.

Oh how I would like to see a UFO..When we first went to the Kruger National park... we saw what most people hope to see yet some never see. A young female leopard in the tree with its kill, a newly born impala buck. Seeing a UFO would be my ultimate desire. Wonderful poem dear Connie, Hugs and blessings, Jennifer

Creative work. Sorry you did not get it finished in time to enter the contest for which it was written. Your presence at my page to let me know about my poems placement on the best new poem list was encouraging to me. I would have probably never known it was there if you had not. Sara

Connie, Enjoyed the storyline on the Stars Ships and the 'twilight twists' in your Haibun's sky maneuvers. Save this poem for another contest entry. -Richard

Wow, just look at that photo. I've seen reports of sightings like this one in our Western states. Great haiku to describe it. Sorry you missed the contest deadline. Same thing happened to me. Contests seem to be filling fast now, but I feel sure this would have been a winner! Hugs, Carolyn

A dazzling light show of star ships, we have yet to understand the mystery of these ships, which many believe are visitors from another planet.. Very nicely penned Connie, Blessings

I remember you telling me about your experience Connie and I for one believe in them. I was reading an article recently about navy pilots who had seen these strange lights in the sky carrying out manoeuvres that defies all the laws of gravity. Are they from another galaxy or another dimension seems nobody really knows. So many professional people like yourself have witnessed these strange phenomena, I know governments are not telling the whole story as they're concerned about national security but I think we all have a right to know.

This is a very interesting topic which you write about, Connie...and I can relate to the 'twisted necks'; I have spent many summer nights looking out for alien signs (we have flat roofs, and I learned to lie on my back to be more comfortable!). Hope you are keeping well, my friend. Regards // paul

I luv writing on UFOs and aliens sometimes so I enjoyed your stellar brilliant depiction of these mysterious starships that many have seen in many parts if the world and I strongly believe them to be of extraterrestrial origin beyond our powers. Kudos for this interesting poem!! Plz do read and comment my newest poem too.

Connie, you took me on a glorious ride through the atmosphere with the Mother Ship and her offspring! They are out there! I have experienced many unexplained occurrences and have friends who have seen amazing things. It sounds like you have as well. All the best to you, Susan

Twisted necks for sure! I was swimming on my back to watch the fair terns soaring above me when I noticed a white disk hovering in the sky, which seemed impossible as the clouds were sailing by. Had to be an UFO, as rockets could not match its speed when it moved! Aloha! Rico

What a pity you missed the deadline. Maybe it took time to get permission to use that beautiful picture. A lovely Haibun.

Thank you very much Gina. I have seen many UFO's even here in Hawaii. One night we were watching this bright star which began to move up then down and then sideways. There were several reports from people the next day about it. Have a great week my friend. Blessings xxoo

I was on the road nearly every night for 20 consecutive years and i have honestly never seen a UFO. I did enjoy reading your poem, Ms Connie. It was very interesting.

My whole crew and I saw a cigar shaped UFO flying low and following our limo on an isolated forest road on our drive to our hotel. It followed us so slowly until all of a sudden it took off so fast that it was out of sight in a second. Our pilots confirmed we have no aircraft that can fly at that speed and that it was a UFO...possibly mother ship. I find it intriguing but wouldn't want to be abducted for sure. Thanks Daniel.
