Partial Solar Eclipse -- Austin 30 May 1984
There was a solar eclipse today.
Only partial, but enough to make you want to look.
It made me sad.
I didn't have a piece of smoked glass or ultra-dark Ray Bans, and certainly not a solar scope.
Looking up, I saw the sun flash through leaf-made pinholes waving in the breeze.
Disappointed, I looked down,...
and discovered a thousand crescent suns dancing at my feet.
