Eclipse Day

TalentTALENT

 

Back to school, and this was a really big day, whether you were in a science class or not. This was eclipse day. The moon covers the sun in an eclipse, and the air gets all eerie as if it’s faintly tinted with gray.

But not ash.

It’s cooler out, and you can’t look directly at the sun because it’ll burn up your retinas.

But you can look in a box through a pinhole. Second hand. Like most of the news. It’s all filtered through reporters. But I’m off the subject here.

The moon covers the sun.

Sometimes clouds cover the moon and the sun.

Clouds get blown by the wind, but the sun and moon don’t.

 

The rules aren’t so hard and fast with humans.

They cover their feelings and plot, sometimes.

Especially if they have a screw loose . . . You know who you are.

 If you don’t know who that someone is, read Talent, TALENT. You’ll like it, though you may not like all of us who are in it. See, I’m finally starting to learn, that you can’t win everyone’s heart, no matter how hard you try.

Special thanks to my author, B. Lynn Goodwin, www.writeradvice.com, for typing up these thoughts for me.
