The Solar Eclipse

On a normal day
All is quiet
A crimson delay
Causes much unrest
Shadows grow
Strengthened by darkness
All we know, exceeds understanding
What lit the Earth
Loses power for just a moment
A dark shadow, crowned
By a golden halo
Suspended in mid-air
Blindlingly awestruck
We question its influence
What the eclipse has to teach
We may never know
But for just a moment
We stand in silence
