Solstice + Full Moon + Total Lunar Eclipse = Darkest Night in 456 Years?
Some time around 21 December 2010 there is supposed to be a Total Lunar Eclipse. Since it will also be Solstice, the shortest day and longest night of the year, some say it will be the darkest night in 456 Years. Prime time for creatures of the night, blood suckers, lawyers, vampires, zombies and congressmen.
Get your Dark on!
Scientists, who are rarely if ever much fun, point out that it may not be particularly dark and that a New Moon for instance would be darker. Why spoil the fun! Have a fun time and let out the dark!
Dark Moon. Hidden Sun.
Rising with the full orb.
Knee deep in the steaming blond grasses.
Drifting to the water edge
Mining ocher in the desert at night under a full moon
Draining substance from veins of color in the desert under a full moon
Echoes of moon pools on a desert floor.
Moon pools under desert stars

Racing for the Sunrise under an Electric Moon
It is near dawn and I have just been shot out of a cannon
A typical commute,
paying some Spaniard
for the right and privilege to drive 80 miles an hour through the heart of Dallas.
The tollways takes its toll as speeding commuters squirt out onto surface streets
like steel blood loss under sodium vapor lamps burning mercury.
I rose up 18 floors into the executioner’s song of a sunrise.
On the way to pour hot caffeine directly into my veins
I peer out through the fleeting dark at a jeweled city
rising from slumber.
Giant buildings eat people disgorged from buses
only to spit them out again when the day done.
A Catchment full of Moonlit Water
A misty river in a mossy vale
A catchment full to the brim of moonlit water
Lichen covered boulder worn smooth by time and water
Knee deep in the dragonfly grasses
Barren beach on a cold lake
Ribbed dry bones of the earth
a place of water ages past but alas, it flows no more
Staccato cliffs like shattered bones and broken teeth
Twisted shoals mired in milky mist
