my chair was in the path of totality

my chair was in the path of totality a thin ribbon about seventy miles wide moving West to East it does this because of at the equator Moon's shadow moves eastward at a greater velocity than Earth's rotational velocity causing travel from East to West across the surface the moon fully covers the sun surrounding me on the beach were scientists and New Agers gravity bending light was discovered in 1919 proving Einstein was on target Isaac Newton discovered gravity which philosophers and scientists had been ruminating on for centuries science was here to witness and confirm my confirmation as the moon's shadow raced ashore and the birds at sea turned suddenly inland, that was amazing the New Agers were hoping to witness a promise, the Dawning of the Age of Aquarius where Harmony, Understanding, No Lies Mystic Cristal Relations, Golden Days of Living the Minds Total Liberation and as the light and sun disappeared one on mushrooms declared she had seen the face of God confirming black and a woman my wry comment brought glaring looks does she look annoyed, perchance piqued they would not miss my observations a few days passed before all left i had my beach and pueblo back the mercado had toilet paper i had breakfast in peace at last Conchita's taco stand normal men discussing fishing, politics children at play purchasing churros here it is 32 Years later and the Age of Aquarius is pretty much the same old crap humans are cute and predictable to be avoided, why i so relate to Ferdinand the Bull, loved that cartoon i am watching a movie Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy are walking a lane once they were upon opposite shores they have finally come to terms on marriage this is a mystery to me why did God so love us he blessed us with the ability to love why it is the greatest of them all why it does not require mushrooms to see God, if one cares to look only the Blind in the Heart cannot see He is the metronome dancing in the trees only those Deaf in Spirit cannot hear Him speak in the wind wandering thru the meadow and in all of the senses love is the sweetest taste of all OKC 8/12 get in the mood at Youtube: The 5th Dimension Age of Aquarius 1969
