The Tall Spirit

by Donna Hayes
I was
sound asleep
when
my eyes popped 
open.
Above me 
was a tall 
spirit 
or 
person, glowing 
and very 
white and very 
tall. 
All I can remember 
of the 
face was 
the eyes looking 
straight at me. 
She or He 
reached down and 
touched my chest 
area and 
when it did 
the whole 
hand covered 
my body. 
I felt warm and 
I wasn't 
afraid 
at all. 
I stayed 
awake 
for
awhile
wondering 
if what I saw 
was what 
I thought 
it 
was.
