This Strange Sky

By Val Parks

This strange sky…
The moon eclipsed,
Its corona
Of pale orange light
Appears dust filled.

So primitive man
saw an angry god,
and so instilled with guilt,
He fell upon his knees
And wept, and prayed.

The blackened orb
Gave way to silver light,
And so confirmed his guilt
And his redemption.
