October 10th…“WHAT’S THE STRANGEST THING YOU EVER SAW IN THE SKY?”
POEM – “When The Sky Flew By” by N. Elliott Noorlun
The birds grew shy, As the sky flew by,
And careened up over the mount.
What happened next, Seemed almost hexed,
Forming scene of startling count.
For stacked on top, Of mountain’s dome,
Were pancakes made of clouds.
A sight that grabbed my attention fast,
Unlike its usual shrouds.
A word from Latin, That means “lens”,
As I stood there upon the sod,
To me, They almost seemed to be,
The looking lens of God.
The next impressive skyward scene,
Happened off Hawaii’s Coast.
It captured awe and a bit of fear,
And what really mattered most,
Was that I saw, Not one but TWO,
Waterspouts twisting wild,
And if they’d come upon the shore,
They’ likely scoop up this child.
So even though, There oft can be,
Some gentle times in sky,
I’m always awake to catch the times,
For this awestruck Norski guy!
