Great Sand Dunes, poetry

the touch of beauty


Sadly, I didn’t see the lunar eclipse last week. It was a rare combination of supermoon, blood moon, and lunar eclipse that hasn’ t happened for 152 years! I know some people who were pretty excited by the event. The Great Sand Dunes National Park in southern Colorado would have been a gorgeous setting to welcome in those new energies. Thankfully, we can live vicariously through the beauty graciously shared by Patrick Myers and the National Park Service. The soft moonlight on the dunes looks like a painting and inspired my poem. Thank you.

  1. Beautiful Brad! Gosh, how I love the moon! ❤
    Oddly, I didn't know about the lunar eclipse, but I did notice the moon was looking especially lovely all last week, and one evening I thought the moon looked strange because part of it was shaded when I thought it was supposed to be full, so I might have seen it by accident haha! 🙂
