Haiku (reflective) – the sun and not-the-sun

2012 annular solar eclipse seen at sunset near buildings

It’s Haiku Day for the WordCount 2012 Blogathon, so I took yesterday’s (invisible-from-Florida) annular eclipse as inspiration:

Strangest afternoon,
Sun-disk nibbled by the moon –
Hiding in plain sight.

Yes, I know that haiku isn’t supposed to rhyme – it just happened…

  1. I’ve never seen an annular eclipse. I have been privileged to see two total solar eclipses. You have captured a lot of the essence of an eclipse.

  2. Lovely Haiku. I like that you blend the eastern (haiku) with the western (language and rhyme), especially since this eclipse was seen around the Pacific Rim.
