Alien – #Haibun


We appear diff’rent,
Yet our thoughts are indistinct.
Who here is alien?

I sure hope it’s not me. 


This was written for Sammi Cox’s Weekend Writing Prompt #94, ‘Indistinct.’  I invite you to think of alien both as space-alien or as an international alien.  I think it works for both meanings.

    I just immediately thought of extraterrestrial aliens as you do, but yes us humans may look a bit different from one another but inside we’re all pretty similar.

    I’ve always wondered how humanity would cope with meeting aliens from another world, since some can’t seem to handle basic differences like skin colour, how would we react with meeting another intelligent species that was totally different from us in many ways?

    Of course if aliens ever arrive they will be totally nice to us and want to be our friends and give us nice big hugs… I think I’m overtired… 😀
