Soothsayers

They love signs in the sky

Eager millions

Crowd highways,

Looking to the sky

In desperate hope for

Purpose, meaning or a

Sign, but will remain

Empty.

**********************************************************************

Don't get me wrong, I probably enjoyed the eclipse more than anyone because it was on my birthday, and in the town I was born in, totality started at the time I was born. However, false prophets were screaming from the rooftops (i.e. internet) that the celestial phenomenon was more than just a beautiful act of God, namely, a sign of His judgement. The hogwash they spewed was riddled with logical fallacies and atrocious scriptural backflips. As we saw, it was nothing more than a wonderful display. I hope you got the chance to see it too.

    That is so cool that it started at the same time that you were born and sounds like the very good start of a movie. Loved this

    Yes it was a beautiful picture. There were people saying things all over the world over the internet. Not much to the eclipse here in California. So just wrote a fantasy story about it. The eclipse is one of nature's beauties
