They’re eyes watched the sky where a bright orb flew.
Camera feeds cut out as speculation
grew. Was it an alien ship that blew
past the international space station?
Or did it have a cosmological
explanation? A rogue comet perhaps,
or some reason that’s astrological
in nature? A true phenomenon mayhap,
unless YouTube’s vision lies, or my eyes
deceive me. Lens flaring changes the orb
from an ovoid to a cross shape that flies,
perhaps its a sign that our lives absorb
a mind much vaster still, a Creator
who’s come spying like an aviator.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Million-Dollar Question.” I was inspired by Qubit’s post about the UFO that did an ISS flyby which I had just read about here. The million dollar question for me is not why I blog, but who’s watching us? I’ve discussed why I blog here already. (Hint: it’s for my sister; it was her last request that I stop writing in isolation.)
