Pg. 58 — SIGNS OF NOVEL TECHNOLOGY by Wendy Van Camp


seen through ocean fog
mysterious orbs of light
buzzing battleships


fighter jets scramble
chase saucers across the sky
nothing to see here


discs flit overhead
nuclear power draws interest
all hands on the deck


sailors point at Pleiades
for disc under hazy moon
ET please go home


[Editor’s note: Wendy states that these SciFaiku were inspired by the recent reports from the US Navy about UFOs.]
