Weekly Photo Challenge: Corner- The Intersection of Sun & Moon

I caught these images on concrete during the recent total eclipse in Oregon.  As the moon covered the sun, the image in the sky was projected on the ground in the shadows of leaves.  It was spellbinding.Eclipse Shadow1Eclipse Shadow2Eclipse Shadow3

In the Path of Totality

IMG_8191No matter how much the terrorists, the despots, (& our president) try to steal the show, nature wins hands down.  What a magnificent sight it was to gaze up at the sky & witness such a celestial event among friends.   It was a great morning in IMG_1484Oregon!

 

 

 

ECLIPTICA

The sun & the moon

met each other in the freshness of an August morning

and as they embraced, the sun smiled brightlyIMG_1464

then grinned as he crowned the moon

with a corona of dazzling light.

The earth hushed

The sky darkened in reverence

& we stood in awe before the crown.

Then the two lovers slowly

parted ways

committed to their lonely orbits

leaving us in the fullness of day
