Eclipsed From Sleep


Blog Posted:12/21/2010 8:59:00 AM

I am a man advanced in years

And for the most part need my sleep.

I’m usually in bed by nine

Not that I want to be abed;

You’ll find out if you live this long

That the mind is always younger

Than the body it occupies.

What this means is I’m often

forced to do things against my will.

Last night is a good example:

I wanted to see the eclipse

Of the moon beginning early

In the AM morning hours.

I struggled long to stay awake:

I sat in a comfortable chair

Anticipating the eclipse

With tired eyes through my window

Only to involuntary

Fall asleep and miss the damn thing.

    Iolanda, I am from northwest New Jersey.Humbug! Just kidding.Have a great Christmas, I know we will...I hope..I hope..I hope...lol Did you know that the last time a lunar eclipse happened on the winter solstice was in 1991. The next one will be 2094. I'll be long dead for that event.

    Cute poem, Albert. The eclipse was amazing. Bet there were a lot of folks who just couldn't stay awake long enough to view it. Best wishes for the holidays, Carolyn
