One occurrence that is viewed the world over is the eclipse. In Mexico, there are still some rituals practiced. Parents tie red cloth around their children’s wrists and the necks of animals–dogs, cattle, horses–and farmers protect their crops in the same way by tying red cloth around gates or fence posts. I wrote about my own lunar ritual over a year and a half ago when few present viewers were reading my blog. My poem was written in complicated terza rima–a form explained in that post.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Daily Ritual.” Think about your day. Select one of your daily rituals and explain it to us: why do you do what you do? How did you come to adopt this ritual? What happens on days when you can’t perform it?
