I wonder how many of you got to see the “blood moon” this morning? I got up at 7:15 am and glanced out our south window to see stars twinkling brilliantly in a black sky. No moonlight, though.
My husband had reminded me before bed that there would be an eclipse in the early morning, so I stepped out and had a look around. Took some looking but I did find the moon, pretty much at full eclipse, and it definitely did have a bloody appearance. I checked again from time to time as the earth started to move away. These natural phenomena are always intriguing.
In honour of this “blue moon” and lunar eclipse event, I’ll post some lunar haiku I’ve written in the past:
midnight poems composed when sleep won’t come
only the moon is clear
In the wee hours he wanders, bleary eyes full of moonshine
even to the drunkard snoring in the alley the moon is kind
