Eclipse on Solsbury Hill

Ascending through misty envelope
We reached the shallow dome
Where Earth kisses Sky
Each melding into Other
In touching transference
But with no Sun in Sight
Until a pallid glimmer began to show
Through thinning vapour
Revealing hard-bitten disc
Gradually eroding
Into metallic sliver
As sights and sounds of morning dusk
Filled chilling air
Until the turn-around began
In brightening, warming haze
Preparing for equinox
