Treasure Island

doug bentley

UFO Museum

the hohokam elder
sent his shamanic brother
in rose mask war
paint to point out

that the face on mars
has geometric stars

and NATO has a UFO
museum - relics that
we're not the sole race.

so why dump 'anomalous
items' into the sea?

or leave them to sit
in military cabinets
where they stay

even one old hopi
could solve with a wave
of his finger pointing
at mars?

resonant reminders
of the brief history
of human time

    Hi Doug, I enjoyed this one. Given the size and scope of the physical universe, the zillions of galaxies and zillions and zillions of planets, I'm open to the concept of other existing intelligent life-forms within it. (Guess you know I love Star Trek, and other shows of that ilk.) The probability of the non-existence of other beings is so remote. To me it is preposterous to not believe. I trust that 2014 will bless and guide your unfoldment and grow your eternal knowingness. Cheers! (Report) Reply

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
