Black Solar Sky Eve

 
Super Black Moon Dance
                     Black Solar Sky Eve
 
And then there is a Black Moon
A New Moon sky mirage on a hot sunny day
Unseen sunlight washed into the haze
A dark super moon shadow to Sun
 
Setting and rising as Helios is seen dancing with the muses and Selene
 
Into the night as the four winds spiral
The swollen tides the sea birds unroost
From the ocean depths the dolphins fly
Seahorses and Poseidon with his trident emerge
Mermaids and Neptune carousel waltzing the waves
As all sea creatures circle in crisp splashes of joy
 
Creatures of the land in polka merry-go-round
Spearing the golden rings of dreams of hopes
Chaos Gods above the canopied compassionate New Moon sky
In awe join the carnivalesque pan fluting cosmos masquerade
 
All merrily dancing
 
All feel the spell as Earth and Moon will center the Sun for a galactic Black Solar Sky

A Super New Moon occurred on the 25th this month. Moon experts say it was the biggest Moon because it was at its perigee to the earth but invisible to the naked eye as the glare of the sunlight washes it out.
Thought I'd write about it juxtaposing mythical gods in a fantasy poem,
their reactions to this galactic event anticipating a grander show -
the Total Solar Eclipse coming in August this year, The Black Solar Sky across the USA.

Hi Francis - no worry, be happy!
Read and enjoy our work at our leisure. Poetry is a gift to be enjoyed without guilt, for our soul's happiness. It's like being happy even before there is a reason to be happy (Hafez).

Kind of missed this one when you wrote it. How rude of me. LOL

Wonderful imagery as always.

Never heard of black moon before. Hhmmm. There's blue moon and strawberry moon. Silver and blood moon as well. And the moon made of cheese. LOL

Nice poem Brod

Thanks Brod for liking. Moon experts call one New Moon a Black Moon if there are more than 12 New Moons in a year.
I called the Super New Moon that occurred on the 25th of May a "Black Moon" simply because it was not seen and blended in the dark night sky, normal for New Moon. Super because of its size being closest to earth. However, this year's total solar eclipse in August will be an event not to miss because a true Black Moon will be triggering it. Here's Google: Great American Eclipse 2017
On August 21, 2017, a Black Moon will cause a total solar eclipse which is an extremely rare combination.
This eclipse will be a spectacular sight and will be visible all across the United States. This has earned it the nickname the Great American Eclipse, although it will also be visible in other countries.
