eagles flight – Eclipse Day (in Ohio) – 8/21/17

In Ohio working this week on the day of the solar eclipse crossing the US, and am reminded today of another eclipse described in the Old Testament scriptures.
Enjoy, and don’t go blind.
Eclipse Day (in Ohio)
Looking forward
to each new now
that breaks open today
as the Moon obscures
the Sun’s glory
and reveals much
we couldn’t see
in the brightness
and brilliance
and Your Glory
is made somehow
more beautiful for us
(as You did for Moses)
at the moment when
the least is showing
and we can finally see
and apprehend
the smallest portion
of Your Glory

About Clark W Johnson

I am a poet, interested in using poetry to explore my interactions with the spiritual. I find poetry captures tension, paradox and flow well enough so I can hold experiences at arms length and reflect on them from multiple vantage points. As I walk deeper with my God, I'm finding such a record invaluable for myself, and I find that pieces and parts touch others as well. I love and long for more points of contact along those lines.
