The Legend of the Blood Moon Rising

 

There is blood in the heavens

There is a reddish haze

It creeps from aft horizon

It portends a doom of hate

 

Mystics pray and light the door

With candles blessed are we

To ward off evil spirits that

Roam the world on spree

 

It is said that on this night

Night of the blood moon whole

The door to Hades opens wide

And the Devil flies for every soul

 

He unleashes his minions

His demons are free to flee

As demonic and treacherous as

The worst that man can be

 

A candle wax made from bees

Lit on the window ledge

Bearing the blessing of a Priest

Protects those within, instead.

I think that sometimes people believe that science's empirical evidence of natural phenomena undermines the spiritual significance of the events.

There is 98% of the universe that we don't understand called black matter. Maybe in that 98% is where the spiritual world exists and maybe we had a greater understanding of it before we "really" knew what it was.

Beautiful artwork and tale in the poem. I like the moon. Great mystery had been create by her changes. I like the set-up of the poem leading to the good ending. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

enjoyed watching last night and reading today ;) fantastic pic ...
"The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord." Acts 2:20 :))
i imagine all sorts of ancient peoples watching in horror, the darkening of the sun and moon and especially a blood moon ... lacking understanding, they crouched in fear and some smart ol' witch doctors seized the moment i am sure ... i enjoy lore of all kinds ..its rich in culture and symbolism ... with a touch of true to boot!! the night sky is always spectacular; but especially so with a Super Moon in full eclipse .. nice one you Star you!

I SAW IT! :-D

It was so amazing surreal. I mean, I woke up at 3am and stayed awake until 5am but it was so worth it.
I got some pictures yesterday evening just before I went home, it was so gorgeous. Your poem, fantastic as always - I am so fascinated by the moon, always have been since I was a child so to see this is out of this world, literally.

This is so fantastic!

Unfortunately all I've seen are clouds. I like the feel of this poem. It makes me think of secret societies that are dwelling within our midst. Crazy but true.

Nice writing with a mysterious tone to it.

I always enjoy reading the lore behind natural occurrences, and often wonder what went through people's minds before there was an understanding of this phenomenon...I enjoyed watching the eclpise last night from the comforts of my chair in the living room and am enjoying this poem in the same place :)....well done :)

:) you are welcome!
we are having nothing here but clouds...but we know it is happening...i see double meaning in this poem...eclipse can cover a heart, maybe the treachery that is there---but even if there is a mask, like clouds, over the heart....the hidden agenda, the evil one is still there---
something so pretty can conceal something so bad.

love this.
