My Poetry

“Blood Moon Rising,” A Tanka

For my Weekly Poetry Challenge this week, I wrote a Tanka poem about the blood moon eclipse which will take place tomorrow, July 27th, 2018. I used “wisdom,” for beliefs, and “odd” for strange.


There has been some speculation about this particular celestial event, as it is the longest eclipse, lasting in excess of six hours. This eclipse will not be seen in America, while it can be viewed in other parts of the world. Click HERE to find the best viewing times and places.

Sooth-sayers have come out in droves, predicting that this event will portend the end of the world. Click HERE to read the Blood Moon Prophesy.

While I don’t necessarily believe that the world will end tomorrow, I do feel the vibrations of new beginnings in our world order. I believe that if we shine our light filled with love outward into the universe we will increase the positive vibrations for the world.


The blood moon eclipse—
ancient wisdom transcending,
as Mars hovers near.
While Earth, Moon, and Sun align
predicting odd days ahead.

    1. I know, there is something brewing… of course, we have the crazy one in the WH and that doesn’t make life easier. LOL! 😀

    1. LOL! I started out writing about Crow and this is where I ended up. It’s all one in the same, I think. 😀 Thanks, Willow. ❤


  1. I’m not sure that we could survive the days getting much odder. 🙂 But a positive change wouldn’t certainly be good.
    These types of events are so cool–too bad we won’t be able to see it here.

    1. Oh, thanks Janette. I started writing something else and Crow, my muse… led me there. It’s always fun to see if I can use different synonyms than everyone else. 😀 ❤

    1. Thanks, Vashti. The blood moon would have been amazing, I’m sure. We’re in another Mercury Retrograde. Oh, joy. LOL! 😀 ❤
