Hyacinth garden

when midnights ink becomes a zealot.

slow to glow feel the dark velvet.

this must be lunar envy.

warnings are without sanction in this apathy.

in deep space, red light energy is not anger.

haphazard illustrations keep company with languor.

damage lay upon a moon face, eternally kept.

clouds silken white shrouds hide tears that constellations wept.

this is a night within confusion and survival of anguish.

your shine becomes submissive and light will languish.

silent sorrow there in the dark.

what is fire without a spark?

traverse the earth past the sun.

whose heart is without moonbeams spun?

hide the fear that left your lips.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Millions across the Western hemisphere will have the chance to see the Moon turn red during the year's only total lunar eclipse early on Thursday morning, astronomers said on Wednesday.

The eclipse will be visible across Western Europe, northwest Africa, the eastern half of North America and the whole of South America,
The full Moon will turn yellowish and then appear blood red, rusty or grey, depending on the atmospheric conditions on Earth.

During the eclipse, the Earth will line up directly between the Sun and the Moon, which will be covered by the Earth's shadow.

Sunlight will pass through the edge of the Earth's atmosphere, scattering blue light and giving the Moon a reddish hue.

The Moon should turn red by about 3 a.m. the eclipse will end by about 6 a.m.

The Moon will be in front of the Leo constellation, with the bright star Regulus to its right and Saturn to its left.

The next total lunar eclipse won't be seen until December 2010.
