Lunar Eclipse

The blushing moon,
a chance arrangement of gravity,
the motions of objects in the solar system.
Their phones, their iPads,
his 12-inch Dobsonian reflector telescope,
looking up 
to see something rare and live.
As more of the moon emerges,
like a stand of small trees.

It is Day 18 in NaPoWriMo. Today I used the April PAD prompt, which was to write a weather poem. This is not so much weather as it is astronomy, but you don't see a Blood Moon every day. Sadly, I missed it, but there are a number of great videos of this event. This is a found poem and I used this article. While you are reading the article, make sure you watch the video as well.
