Sun and earth and moon align
rays refract, spotlight is the moon
our atmosphere serves scattering shine
Greens and blues all dissipate soon
leaving only red and orange hues
I bask in the light of this night balloon*
Missed the spectacle? Just wait
Six more months will set you straight!
(*no bad omen, only to a loon)
H/T to the Terza rima, NaPoWriMo2014, this fifteenth day of April, 2014.
