A BLACK MOON SHINES

A BLACK MOON SHINES

Listen to the Druid's thumping drums
Hear the song bird's nervous cry
For on this warm August day
A Black Moon shines in the sky

As the Sun hides behind the shadow
Of Goddess Diana's silhouetted face
Pagans dance and sing in the twilight 
Come join them and celebrate

For after the Solar Eclipse is over
There will be no guarantee 
What once always was
Will forever always be

Hello Kimmy...

I'm not sure if I will be able to see it from here...

The stars will be out during the day...

How cool is that?

Everyone sold out of glasses so far...

I hope people are careful because they can get eye damage or worse...
​​​​​
Great write!

Thank you for sharing...

Hugs...

Thanks Sparrow Song

Doubt I'll get to see it either.  I'll be at work.  That's all I've been doing this summer; work,work and more work.  Consequently haven't been on Cosmofunnel for awhile, and have been missing my reading my Cosmo friends' poetry.  Hope to catch up later this fall when things begin to slow down.

Hi Kimmy....I had just received an email from my father telling me of the eclipse on August 21st...AND warning me NOT to look at the sun without special glasses or I could do permanent damage to my eyes....Very cool poem...leaving an elusive ending as to what this eclipse could mean....what changes unforeseen...hmmm...It is so nice to see you on Cosmo, especially as busy as you are....Hope you are well. Your posts are always appreciated.   xox Cherie

Thanks Cheri for the wonderful compliment.

Yes, I have been busy working as of late, but plan to catch up on all yours and other poets writes as soon as work subsides.  

Hope your having a fun summer
