Recurring Dream of Yesteryear


Fallen I cannot walk
breathing is difficult as I try to crawl
to a place of safety
my body numbing
as my arms fail me.

From the sky it descends
large and ominous
a bright magnesium burning object
announcing its arrival
with searing heat emanating.

My brain screaming
as it awaits what it knows is coming
but uncertain of the cause…
heat or impact, as it has my name.

In a cold sweat I wake.

    • That was from when I was about 10. It always hit when I was sick with the flu or something. Hasn’t reappeared in 50 years. Too late for the name change now; but if it reappears… oh ya!
