Bare feet flex on cool wet deck
Clouds shimmer in pink
Clouds covered the sky during the night of the lunar eclipse. Although, I had gone to bed, I woke. Rain was splattering against the windowpanes. The cat who had accidentally been left outside was meowing.
Reluctantly, I rose and padded through the living room and an ailing slumbering spouse on the couch. Upon opening the back deck door, the cat whooshed in with an indignant meow. The dog scampered past me while I stood there astonished by the hazy light of the night. Despite the cool rain, I stepped outside in my robe and bare feet. To the north the sky shimmered in a translucent pink. Rushing back inside I grabbed my cell phone. I could not resist taking a photo.
I'm wondering, did anybody actually see the Blood Moon?
