The Eclipse (A Remarkable Event)

ECLIPSE

Blood moon

Red Moon

Portents and Omens

Wolf moon – close your eyes and hear them howl

Primal and mystical

The fourth tetrad of eight eclipses

Umbra penumbra and antumbra

Creeping shadows cast from space

Mars is close – hurry to the mosques to pray

A conjunction of phenomena

Red moon

Turned to blood

before the great and terrible day of the Lord

    Lovely poem Jennifer. I’m not a ‘poet’ but this brought back feelings and memories of a remarkable event and what is foreshaddowed.

    I loved this Jennifer, it gave me a shiver up the spine as the last line was read. Not sure why? But with poetry i believe it touches your soul, so maybe it touched a deep part of my soul.
