the sun has a smile
angry - weeping - red passion
the sky wears a grin
Unfortunately, I was about five hundred miles too far east to see this thing in all its glory.
Did you?

EDIT: First page? ... Seriously? This one?

First page! :w00t: Awesome! With something like this you have to expect that some people will :+fav: for the photo (which is amazing, by the way) but they're cheating themselves if they don't actually read your poem as well. The imagery in your poem actually manages to be even more vivid than the photo!

xD Thanks!
And yeah, I figured that much of the attention was probably for the photo... which wasn't even that impressive, at least compared to so many of the other eclipse shots on DA.

I really liked the picture. I liked that how from one angle it look like a moon in it shape, I liked how the flowers and the trees look as if they are drawn or stick into it. It is a really nice photo.

I was able to see it, but hardly thanks to my pitiful sunglasses. My boyfriend didn't have the right kind of lense to capture it, so we didn't get any good shots either. What did you use?
