4 AM

At 4 AM, your image I spied
Through the window, opened wide.

Silver white, completely round,
You slipped by without a sound.

Moving to your shadowed date
With astronomy's predestined fate.

Watching as your face eclipsed;
Earth's shadow blocking sun's warm lips.

With mornings dawn, alas, alack,
'Twas 4 AM 'fore you came back.

You've captured the essence of the crimson eclipse. Lovely! I saw a bit of it and wished the trees here had been shorter!

I missed it but you brought it to me with poetry. Can't think of a better way to share an eclipse. HUGS

I didn't see the eclipse but the full Harvest Moon has been beautiful. Your photos are great, I can never get a decent one of the moon.

Cool photos and really nice poem! I especially loved the first stanza -- it has such a warm, welcoming feeling to it, like a friend dropping by!
