Eclipse  - Poem by Gert Strydom
Like a Godly sign
of tranquil illustrious sanctity
a shadow falls over me
and it’s falling further and further
and the moon does colour
the light becomes dark
and stars near to the eclipse
become visible in brought daylight.
There is darkness falling over the earth
as far as my eyes can see
while the moon does extinguish the sun
and the sun becomes black
in a full eclipse
and the sun has a photosphere
with a blue-white hue
that hangs around it.
It’s almost as if God Himself
is holding out His hand
and now creates a shadow
to protect the earth
from a flaming star.
What great events
are now waiting upon this earth
that is torn by wars,
by disasters, suffering and human misery?
