You and the Eclipse

to Greg

 

Watch as the moon makes a sliver of the sun.  You can almost see it move. It put a blind spot on the surface. Solar experience. Totality somewhere. But you would not travel to the path of totality. You who doesn’t like lines, traffic or the hype. Now totality comes in another place and you are content with just a sliver of the moment.

So it never got dark, it never made that perfect circle of promised intervention or made the stars shine in the day. And now a half disc lowers itself towards the east horizon and I watch and wait for the glorious totality of the sun.

Can this be random
When heavens and earth align
Or a great design?

You and the Eclipse

Eclipse

earth goes round the sun
while moon rotates the earth
meeting on occasion
not seen too much in Perth

photographers go out
a photo op of her
all variables they doubt
the best shot may be Weiser

folks are selling glasses
keep your eyes safe viewin’
some of them are asses
fake is what their doin’

get ready ‘or the land
time it is a wastin’
be ready to take stand
next one in generations

all your preparation
only minutes to see
add to the frustration
now clouds they cover thee
