In return for a beautiful day and a truly stellar performance from the Sun God and Moon Goddess, I am posting one of my eclipse poems for free.  You can see some of my eclipse photos here.

"Only in the Gift"

I have seen the moon-shielded sun
and the Father God winking
as he turns his one wide eye
back toward the waiting world 

a reminder that we live,
moment by moment, 
only in the gift of
his infinite light.

So mote THAT shit.

The one big thing I noticed (we only got about 95% coverage, so nothing visibly dramatic happened) was that my black mesh motorcycle jacket, which normally gets quite warm in the midday sun when I'm not moving... *didn't*.

There's a fairly big woods off the corner of the property; any absence of light is compounded by the shade...

Just stunning!
It was completely cloud covered in this bit of the other side of the big pond, sadly.

The one I heard broadcasted was from Nashville TN; I could hear the crikets chirping over the brodcaster's voice, it was really kind of cool.
