The Total Solar Eclipse

The total solar eclipse that gripped it saw I silently
As they cautioned
From coming into the contact of the rays of the sun,
Light coming from,
The bluish light, violet rays radiating beautifully,
Some predicted it
To be the end of the ways and the world,
As they go on predicting about,
Astrologers, palmists and gemologists,
Some saw the sun wearing the sunglasses

And it darkened, darkened and grew opaque,
The sparrows started chirping
And returning to their nests,
The birds looking stunned
As for what it happened,
It grew dark so early
And it was a prediction of a disaster,
People moved into their homes,
Talking of the eclipse,
The astronomical miracle,
Happening far off in the skyways.

The total solar eclipse, the sun eaten up or shadowed fully,
The spectacle of the moment
Was so strange and spectacular,
So unguessed about,
The diamond-like ring light coming from,
A celestial observation was it indeed,
The sun being eclipsed totally,
An astronomical miracle.

It seemed to be the evening descended upon,
Darkness prevailing all around,
Birds chirping, back nests,
Returning to,
The scenery appearing devastating and chaotic
And in the meantime, the blue light emitted from,
Dark spots figuring on,
The corona appearing beautiful,
The diamond corona of light.
