The longitude of southwest Missouri prevented me from seeing the full eclipse since it occurred after sunset local time. It wouldn’t have mattered anyway, a cloudbank moved in moments after I took this cool photo and buried the show completely.

Sunset solar show

Clouds part for a moment’s peek

While Luna nibbles


Cumulus curtains

Slowly eclipse the eclipse

As nature’s drapes close

That sure is a cool picture of a partial moon. I don't think I've ever seen the moon so bright. ;-)

You sure seem to be Johnny on the spot with these current event poems. I don't believe I'll ever catch up! Sigh…

This is exquisite!
Those drapes do close and we have to make peace with our past,
but there are always new openings in the future. Eloquent!
