Beyond the bounds: Contact…

*

But what would the first meeting have looked like?

*

Like Cortez, or Cook, or Columbus…

*

The travellers, apparalled differently, brought gifts,

and some of these were, later, still deemed worthy of record…

*

Their manners, and customs, and skills were remarkable,

and they picked up the new language in a twinkling.

*

Their first monuments were small in scale,

but highly efficacious.

*

They spread like wild fire…

*

The stories of their homeland were strange,

beautiful yet fabulous.

*

They were not regarded as ‘Divinities’,

until they disappeared!

*

Even then, there were numerous nay sayers.

*

Where did they come from?

Where did they go?

*

Nobody really knows.

*

There are, though, still many tales,

which allude to their history…
