The Eclipse – A Haiku by Gary R. Hess

“The Eclipse” is a poem to memorialize the total solar eclipse that occurred on August 21, 2017, across the United States. Sadly, I wasn’t able to view it as I’m half-way across the world. Nonetheless, it brought back great memories of when I was a child attempted to view an eclipse during elementary school. It was a great time and I look forward to being able to view the next one.
