Here is a poem I wrote recently in celbration of the night there was a Solar Eclipse and a New Moon.
this poem is mentioned in my blog article:

Eclipse (Hands Folded in Prayer)
It’s mid-May! The breeze is thick
with humid scents of Eau de Parfum.
Today, we have a New Moon
combined with a Solar Eclipse.
The fragrance drifts across the mountain
Delicate, shimmering lavender pink flocks
fragile lace amongst the many specimens
near the edges of a sun washed meadow.
Tamukeyama stands in solitude
near the center of the outer corner.
She glances towards
the Stone mountain, famous for a shrine
of a famous Japanese warrior.
There, in saturated sunlight,
bright yellow-green crescent –
wild ferns encircle her bare feet.
Her gown a shower of brilliant purple lace.
The leaves turned purple in April.
Asks you to set your intention
This is a wonderful opportunity
Take your time!
Hand write 10 wishes
closest to your heart
Consider anything that passes
through your thoughts
What do you want?
Your desires will be magnified.
\what you say will be magnified.
Write each desire on a vellum sheet.
Close the book when the pages are complete.
Hide it carefully.
The progressive season brings transition-
the colour of the leaves from purple
towards burgundy and maroon.
Tamukyama comes into her highest form
She starts to sport
amazingly bright red leaves.
Acer Palmatum dissectum forma astropurpureum
“hands folded in prayer upon the mountain.”
What seemed impossible before is just a thought away.
