the pisces solar eclipse

Standard

an odd new jersey february
the waning days of the month
as warm as spring
tonight a torrential rain
heralded by thunder and lighting
and a howling wind

what does this mean
other than what it is
first this strange weather
then the pisces solar eclipse tomorrow
the end of a long cycle
the death of what no longer serves us
and a new beginning
new possibilities
new choices

or is this
a simple storm
now losing steam
thunder fading
into the distance
deluge slowing
to a single
drop
