Solution by Asmit Dey.


Partial eclips
Sun and Moon and planets go
All together make the show
Meeting in space,
Lovely and cosy
And than the miracle perfectly
Planets align for some minutes precisely
Moon and sun fragments are softly kissing and caressing
To bring love and life with their shining.
