Big Sky Event

Nature's most awesome sight,
stars and planets come out,
once in a lifetime experience;
a total solar eclipse.

Stars and planets come out,
birds and squirrels nest,
a total solar eclipse;
an eerie feeling.

Birds and squirrels nest,
leaves hurl over the earth,
a total solar eclipse;
moon shimmies across the sun.

Gliding through the sky,
once in a lifetime experience,
the big sky event;
nature's most awesome sight.
                  --Brenda Kay Ledford

A total solar eclipse will occur on Monday, August 21, 2017 in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.  The moon will cover the sun for two minutes and 20 seconds at 2:35pm.

We expect thousands of people to visit our area to view this fabulous event.

I enjoyed reading your eclipse poem, Brenda. And I hope to view it when the eclipse takes place in my area as we're right in line to see it for 2 minutes, also. Thank you for sharing your lovely, descriptive poems with your readers.

Hi There, We are excited about this one... I hope and pray that we have a nice day that day since where we live is a good place to see it... Two of my sons are coming for the big event.

Have a wonderful summer.

The Hiding Place

I discovered a treasure within a stone's throw of my home.  It's amazing what you'll find if you take time to savor the beauty...
