I watched the Blood Moon rise tonight
Fighting to be center stage with the fierce Spring winds
Its appearance is a ball of dust in the gray black dusk
Shape shifting second by second
Securing its space in the sky
To the unknowing eye it is but a whiff of smoke
A vampy vapor vieing for luminosity
But the wind is hip to her vice
Shrouding her shame
Tamping down her flame
We’ll see then if the winds wins over this feisty dame
Monday and Tuesday night promised a lunar eclipse but the forecast called for rain overnight. I took this photo with my phone (thus the quality!) in order to at least get a glimpse of one of Mother Nature’s miracles. Sometimes my backyard is a slice of heaven!

I watched it on the coast here in southern Australia. Wonderful though very chilly. I didn’t get very good photos though.
Glad you got to see it too. Too bad about the photos…
Whoops – sorry – forgot to say I really like your poem 🙂
