"What a Beautiful Sunrise!
by Ava Douglas
I think it's?.... the sun?... something is wrong.
The clock; the chickens crowing?
The sky is red. Something..."
"Train com,ing,,, listen."
"I wish I...; could understand....
Wake up! Something is wrong.."
"I heard a train..."
"Wake up; clocks are...? No power.
Sky is ALL red; everywhere All around."
"Roosters crow. Dreaming that...
What time? 'YaGramdma's Morbier' struck two;
and I heard a train long long whistle?
Smoke? it's not fire....
All electronics shot; watch dead; car's shot.
Jeep may run? The mantle clock and Morbier, OK."
"Get your shoes, we're OK,
let's go outside and watch;
it..... is..... beautiful...
and red above the clouds?"
"We are, all alone. I wish the kids were here and the little ones.
Is this one of your precious! GRBs?
700? 153? Or whatever!?"
"Give me' second.
Yes, I believe that it is. But we are, OK.
It is far away, very far away.
And not classified NOW!
We should go check the neighbors.
I'll check the Jeep; you pack something to eat..."
"We stay togeeeether...
First the Jeep...
"Great, the Jeeeeepe runs;
Mac the Ham.... we'll hike up 'taMac's while talking';
Backpacks, flashlights, matches, water......
Eleven signals beamed at Earth... from 700 to 86,000... light years out;
'53,000' WAS..... opposite our sun 53,000 years ago?
All indicated '53' would 'sacrifice'?....
.....synchronized but different and beaming just arrived in 2004?
