Total Lunar Eclipse

                                    Total Lunar Eclipse




A profound rolling sound

moves through our sight

black on white

and then

color of amber

with mountains caught in it.




Moon occluded: black silence.

Who could name majesties of slowly rolling

shadow when our planet covers

the familiar silver face?




The ruddy moon returns--

swaggers into sight

the color of whiskey

from some unknown tavern.

from my book The Wilderness Within

Look for it at Barnes & Noble, Amazon.com, The Bookman in Grand Haven, Schuler Books and Music and many other fine bookstores
