Bloodmoon Morning

Today we had an earth shadow sunrise

As the girth of our Mother

Blackened the light

Forcing her daughter Selena

To hemorrhage

Where she stands

Becoming an artist rendition

Of cousin Mars


My sister in Tennessee noticed

20 seconds before I did

My friends in Minnesota

15 seconds later

While I stood in the middle


In my silent way

Awed overwhelmed

Gratefully surrounded

By a canopy of stars

Standing sentry over the universe

And me too
