blood on the moon

i awoke at 3:30 a.m.  i fumbled toward the window to look into the sky.  can't see nothing.  i grabbed my glasses, headed to the backyard.  it was warm still, standing in my t-shirt and undies, a light breeze.  it had been a very hot day.  i looked up, westerly.  there it was, the blood moon.  gorgeous.  a small disc of rust in the blue-black night.  i thought about waking up nick to see it.  i remembered that the lunar eclipse would last until 6:00 a.m.  nick should see a bit of it by then.  when he got up he did.  sometimes the world and our place in it is magic.
