Blood Moon 2022, by K.E. Creighton

It was ominous yet captivating as it hung in the sky, a harbinger of life, a storyteller of history. A portent of…an omen of… whatever and wherever we cast our shadows, blood, and ballots today. It will be there. And always has been there. With all its spheres of influence and rhythms, both united and divided. Still, it’s important to note that while it’s easy to mistake this muted ball of fire in the sky for something fleeting, its essence remains something sensed, something breathing. It moves our tides and determines everything. For and post living. With its reflected light and gravity.
