Where Do They Come From?
There had been several sightings. Dazzling, glowing orbs of light weaved patterns over our darkened horizons. For seventeen revolutions of our planet; these mysterious visitations had amazed us with a visual display beyond anything we had ever witnessed before.
They made us wonder. For what purpose did they visit us? Where do they come from? Why were they here? Yes, for now, we are scared. Yet our curiosity; our hunger to embrace new knowledge and new realities; overcomes our fear of what we do not know or understand. We believe that when you stop learning; you stop living.
We like to think, that through all our times of conflict and war; that finally, we are drawing ever closer to being a world of peace and compassion. Were these visitations symbolic of that new hope? Perhaps, they will bring lessons from a distant world where kindness and goodwill, is cause for joyful celebration.
Those seventeen revolutions of our planet have come and gone. On that seventeenth darkness; the glowing lights were seen heading towards a brilliant globe-like object.
Such was their velocity; that our imaging machines struggled to capture a final picture. That was two planetary rotations ago. Would the glowing orbs return? Or, maybe that was it. During those seventeen periods of dark and light; there had been reports of seeing the beings within the glowing lights. There have been tales that one of the lights landed and the occupants strolled our terrain. The occupants of the glowing light were described as being creatures larger in stature than us. They had two oval eyes, two ears and two arms that were smaller than their two legs.
I stared up into the darkened sky. A neon storm raged and distorted the view of our two purple moons. I thought of what our world had witnessed. Would the lights and the beings within, return? Where do they come from? If they do return; will they come in peace?
