The Belt of Venus

At dawn, the Earth’s shadow is blue-grey

and above it is a pink band –

the Belt of Venus wrapping our world.

Shadow ascending in the east, as west

sun sets,  her belt and robe dropping.



(The shadow of the Earth is curved like the Earth and extends hundreds of thousands of miles into space. When it “touches” the moon, there is a lunar eclipse. A partial lunar eclipse will occur in the Eastern Hemisphere on the night of August 7-8, 2017.)
