No 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 Oregon!
The sun & the moon
met each other in the freshness of an August morning
and as they embraced, the sun smiled brightly
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
committed to their lonely orbits
leaving us in the fullness of day
