the blood moon

 it filled in the beauty
 lightened the darkness
 and made me believe in so much more
 than what seemed possible

on september 27th,
 i watched as it filled the dark sky
 the blood moon
 a super moon
 eclipsed by the earth’s shadow
 turning it to blood

 a symbol of the soul
 passing through the darkness
 illuminated in a brilliant  cascade of
 deep reds
