Eclipse Over April

On the 8th of April, in twenty-four,
The day turned night, as myths of yore.
A total eclipse, a celestial feat,
Where sun and moon in darkness meet.

The sky darkened in midday's embrace,
A shadow raced in a silent chase.
Across the lands, eyes turned above,
In wonder, awe, and silent love.

For moments, time seemed to freeze,
As light bowed out with graceful ease.
The corona's glow, a ring of fire,
A sight to ignite the soul's desire.

In unity, humanity stood still,
Bound by the spectacle, against their will.
Nature paused, in quiet respect,
For the dance of cosmos, perfect, direct.

From shadow to light, the world transformed,
By the eclipse's power, universally informed.
A reminder of our place, so small,
In the universe's grand, celestial ball.
People pausing their daily routines to look up at the eclipse
People pausing their daily routines to look up at the eclipse
Flora and Fauna Calm Down Under the Eclipse
Flora and Fauna Calm Down Under the Eclipse
