Eclipse

All we can really do is marvel at our own shadows,

wonder at our presence, the reflection of it

that we cast by blood and breath,

by the unnoticed actions we take.

All we can really do is enjoy the light,

when it’s around for us to appreciate, to miss

while it’s dying, to capture in glass jars glowing

like fireflies, like memories, like an eclipse.
