Drought

Dryness came upon the land
Rain withheld short of water
Outside hot temp of two zero
Underground and high plateau
GOD always hears the praying
Hé sent clouds to answer with
Tomorrow we find hope at last

Drought

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
