Eclipsed

eclipsed mandala s

This curious life–
a burst and then a fading–
star paths to the moon.

Faith stitched taut into nothing—
thoughts held together by wind.

eclipsed close up s

A tanka for Colleen’s #Tanka Tuesday with synonyms for strange and beliefs.

It’s a full moon, eclipsed.

    The eclipse and the full buck/blood moon affected me too!! Love it! We’re entering into a new age. I can feel it. New beginnings are scary and fun at the same time. ❤ Well done!

    Those last two lines are particularly powerful. Beautiful blood moon creation, too.

    It was cloudy and rainy here, so we didn’t see the moon, except in photos.

    Especially like the last 2 lines. Blood moon was elsewhere last night. Rain clouds was center stage here.
