Totally Overshadowed

solar eclipse

HEAR YE! HEAR YE! TRÖÖPERS OF STARSHIP EARTH:

COME TO THE CENTER-LINE!

For once, see Father Time play the fool and stay put for five seconds.

For your first or last time, come to the dividing line!

See Mother Moon Superior glide her sleigh

across the vast expanse which hides the Milky Way.

Watch her steal the spotlight from our only light of day.

We live in a perfectly-sized space, where something

perfectly small can totally overshadow something perfectly large.

400 times bigger than The Moon, but 400 times further away is our Sun.

Perfectly placed as of now, but even this equation is falling into entropy,

as The Moon continues to drift further and further from dear Mother Earth.

Do catch this very human experience while you have the chance.

overshadowed by the Moon

Mere creatures of the Earth are we, and we merely believe

in illusion perfected and far-out magicians far greater than we.

Solar winds notwithstanding, we glide the curtains closed,

eclipsing our former shadowy figures with a shadier version of sunny-side up.
