If sky turns red

the memory of a 
a frightening dream
that foresaw
a the-upcoming-dark future,
remained in us sharp.
the memories 
of events-that-followed,
we buried after.

March 24, 1999, Belgrade. later in the afternoon. The media shared that there is the possibility of a NATO attack. So the whole neighbourhood rushed to the first shop for supplies. My sister and I aswell. And while walking she looked up at the sky in fear and said, “I dreamed last night that if the sky turned red today, before sunset,  they would bomb us."
and it was so so red. we held hands tightly. 
9 pm, the first bombs hit Belgrade.
