a poem for a lunar eclipse

December 20, 2010

Tues Aug 28 2007 315am

The moon is burnt orange
the sun took a bite & then another
covering the moon with its shadow
only lit now by light
reflected by earth, by us

It’s spooky & a bit crazy
yet I want to wake my son up
show him our moon
its light should be spilling
across my bed across my face
instead it is eerily dark
when only a few hours ago
it was light

It looks sad alone quiet
up there in the dark
with only a few trees to
hug it lost w/o its light

Post with details about the lunar eclipse (astronomy, astrology, rituals and more) to follows.

For the Monday Poetry Train this week, I offer this 3:15 experiment poem from August 2007 which fits in with the upcoming lunar eclipse tonight at midnight Pacific Coast time. In the 3:15 Experiment, participants from around the globe wake up and write at 3:15 in the morning every night in the month of August in order to stay in a that half awake, half asleep semi conscious dream state…raw unedited 3:15 poems are posted on the website, the 3:15 experiment

And while I do have a new poetry collection out of poems Middle of the Night Poems From Daughter to Mother :: Mother to Son which you can order from en theos press in print or ebook form, this poem isn’t in that book.
