L is for Line Messaging (and Lunar)

When I found the poetic form Line Messaging, I was really excited about the idea of having a poem embedded within a poem. For an added challenge, my embedded poem (found by extracting the last line of each stanza) is a haiku. Since the A-to-Z challenge is on the letter L today, it seemed only proper to honor tonight’s blood moon with my poem.

Tonight

The first in a tetrad

Coinciding with Passover

Earth and moon align

*****

Centered between

The sun and the moon

The Earth casting its shadow

*****

A cold front moving eastward

Dark grey clouds blanket the sky

Leaves us seeing red
