Totality: South Carolina 2017 (poem)

note: In light of unresolved disaster needs in Puerto Rico and the devastating shootings in Las Vegas, I have no words to write on those subjects…too overwhelming. I tend to express myself through musical phrases rather than sentences; poetry rather than prose.
Heartfelt condolences to all affected in both places.

RIP to both Tom Petty (fav rocker) & Red Miller (creator of the Broncos Orange Crush that took us to our first Super Bowl with quarterback Craig Morton – remembered with fondness)

Seems like 2017 has a backlog of compositions in various stages of emergence; here is a recent poem on the beauty felt during a more glorious occasion, as promised.

Totality: South Carolina 2017

poem by Laura Bruno Lilly

Coronet spills

fire cream



 Daytime bathed

in Twilight



 Air embraced

standstill sun

    Great images, Laura, paticularly the opener.
    And in your introduction yes-some dark times we’re witnessing at the moment.

    Oh, Laura. So lovely. Just what was needed today. We need these glimpses of beauty. So thank you. I love the words you chose. They express the eclipse so well.
