The world unites as eyes look up to the sky.
People talk it's special
It's a family event as binoculars point to the sky
I hear neighbors chatter in the distance.
Look, I see the moon is changing.
It's a rare event
The next time this happens is 2033
I remember when our world turned 2000 AD
My sons were 10 and 9
I visualize the table of party hats and sparkle confetti
The anticipation as the countdown started
People feared the computers would stop
September 27 and 28 feels like that
A countdown to something that doesn't happen very often
Some say it's a warning
Keep our earth safe
Some say if you look at past events
The Timeline says there's a change in history
Our hearts cry out;
Dear God let famine stop
Dear God let disease stop
Dear God let poverty stop
Dear God let war stop
We all want peace
We all want a home
We all want a family we can call our own
We all want love
We all want a place to call home
It's the Northern Hemispheres's Harvest Moon or Full Moon nearest the September equinox. It's the Southern Hemisphere's first full moon of spring. The full or harvest moon is also called Blood Moon because it presents the 4th and final eclipse of a lunar tetrad or four straight total eclipses of the moon spaced apart at six month intervals or full moons.
