Solar Eclipse 2024

Crane Beach, Massachusetts   

8 April 2024

A day when the Sun meets the Moon.
 When just the minutes of time bring a sense of where I am and have always been,

  and why is the Sun a principal part of my being.

This is just a partial eclipse, 93% of the Sun is occluded.
 Enough for the light to pass away and for the cold to come in, in the middle of warm daytime.

Never before, have I been face to face with a chance of this life giving power going away.
 As if the Sun is trying to teach me a lesson. 

    I wonder... 

Crane Beach: ... Solar Eclipse today...

Crane Beach: ... a day...

Crane Beach: ... when the Sun meets the Moon...

Crane Beach: ... 93% of the Sun is occluded, enough...

Crane Beach: ... for the cold to come in...

Crane Beach: ... and the light to pass away...

Crane Beach: ... face to face...

Crane Beach: ... with a chance of this life giving power going away...

Crane Beach: ... as if...

Crane Beach: ... the Sun is trying to teach me a lesson...

Crane Beach: ... I wonder...

Early Spring Spirits

Drumlin Farm Wildlife Sanctuary, Lincoln, Massachusetts   

Such early days of spring.
 Browns dominate,
   except for those bouquets of young leaves here and there, quite close to my hands.

 Birds are the first to break the silence of winter.
   Their tweets convey the spirit of arousal, waiting for the woods to respond. 

 From branch to branch. Hopping over fallen trees.

   With the smile... 

Drumlin: ... early colors...

Drumlin: ... sparkle the spirits...

Drumlin: ... over lifeless leaves...

Drumlin: ... and fallen trees...

Drumlin: ... from above...

Drumlin: ... into the arms...

Drumlin: ... the legs...

Drumlin: ... the eyes...

Drumlin: ... and the smile...

Drumlin: ... it is all here...

Drumlin: ... in the air...
