Deep Shadow

deep shadow blood moon through my phone
 
It took its chilly time to shed its light
And turn blood-red in darker, deeper night.
I finally realized its end had come,
But trusted once again it would shine bright.

Linked to dVerse Poetics where Lillian is hosting with the theme word “shed”. The photo above is the Moon in dark shadow through my phone when I went to bed. It looked more amazing in real life.

Evening After the Lunar Eclipse

Author: Frank Hubeny

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.

      1. Frank, I started watching at 11pm and checked every 15 minutes until just after midnight, then when I went to bed around 2, it was almost back to normal. Memorable. My phone not nearly as clear as yours.

  1. It’s true, the photos I took couldn’t quite capture the magic either, but they were definitely the most beautiful moon shots I’ve taken yet. I do wish I could have captured the red cast of the sky too. (K)

  2. I really enjoyed this Frank. Our sky was completely cloudless and star-filled here in our piece if the Pacific Northwest at 9:12 PM on Sunday night with the eclipse of the Super Blood Wolf Moon hit totality. It was absolutely surrealistic. After 72 years (next month) I finally saw a total lunar eclipse in a gloriously clear sky! Wow! And I got a great photo of it posted on my site with my Wolf Moon poem.

  3. A poem of faith; well written. I like the photo of the evening after with those little glowing orbs- nice symbolism. We sat on our second floor deck and shot 100+ of that baby; it was beautiful! And we froze our noses & toeses.

  4. A fitting memorial to a once-ever event, Frank! I borrowed a camera and took a few shots. It was a “chilly time” indeed… and that was here in Florida!

    1. What was hardest was looking up all the time. I realized things were going so slow I didn’t have to look up often, but then I didn’t want to miss it. Thank you, Toni.

  5. Definitely a chilly time, and I sense the impatience, but faith that the light will return.
    (I was already in bed when it began–but the moon was certainly bright that night and the next morning!)
