Captured Solar Eclipse.

Embrace Warmth
The sun slowly makes it way 
over the horizon,
lighting the way with a miraculous
power and awe inspiring beauty 
that is purposefully
alive at every moment. 
It repeats it's stellar performance
for us every morning
when we wake up early enough
to watch it in all its glory
coming up over the horizon as it has been doing 
for hundreds of thousands of years.
In this moment in time 
I cannot comprehend my own
seemingly unimportant existence 
as the rays of the sun wash over me
but I am eternally grateful for being alive.

photo creditor of the 1st photo of the partial solar eclipse
Ace astrophotographer Thierry Legault found a way to make today's partial solar eclipse even more memorable" by "capturing the International Space Station (ISS) as it transited the sun." The article called the image "one to remember. ... The ISS transited the sun in less than a second (0.86 seconds to be precise), so not only did Legault have to be in the right place to see the ISS dash in front of the sun, his timing needed to be perfect

  5. Wow, awesome pics. I didn't realize there was an eclipse today.
    I just finished commenting that I was last up at OSW and I look, and there you are beside me! I love it when we are on the same page.

    I love where you took this poem Joanny. The sun to eternity & your small place in it all. The sun was washing over me in ON today too. Yeah, winter sun!

  7. Ah, beautiful sunshine. Thanks for the photo and for the poetry,, too.

    Please stop by on Thursday, after midnight on Wednesday even, at Portland Oregon Daily Photo to see my first ever embedded video. It shows my younger son Leland bouldering at The Circuit in Portland, Oregon, as filmed by his older brother Lamont, who also boulders.
