Love Eclipses All

Like lovers attracted

by forces beyond their control

the sun and moon



As they merge,

the dusky moon

overlaps the persimmon sun—

a bite from an apple.


Then darkness—

all goes quiet,

the robins silent

the squirrels still.




The corona appears,

rainbow edges

and a golden, radiant

    Thank you,
    Masters Love.

    It was a grand experience for you to see the eclipse. I only watched it on TV, but was amazed at the amount of emotion it evoked. You captured it here beautifully, even encompassing a higher viewpoint and something more to contemplate. Very nicely done!

    And good work, Amalesh! The photograph is amazing!

    I welcome your beautiful poems again, Lesley. The eclipse was indeed deeply moving as your precise words describe. So much happening in both the outer and inner cosmos that is effects the changes we all feel. I was hoping to see you at seminar and there you were. Sending lots of Love. I am living in the flow but have yet to put it to paper again. Lots of change. 😊

    Beautiful reflection of the Inner process. Being present in the process, patience, trust, surrender and acceptance of the Gift!

    thanks Lesley!
