Day 9 - Mistress Of The Skies

Gossamer clouds dance to the tune of the universe, 
moving across the pink face of the rising full moon. 


Sometimes hiding, 
sometimes revealing, 
sometimes cradling, 
always changing.


Still water, as shiny as herself, 
mirror her yellow face,
doubling her beauty.


Her countenance pales to bright white as she watches 
her domain turn from soft blue to velvety black.


Her duty, to reflect sunlight, is performed masterfully.

I love the moon. If only there was some way to control the hair growth...

Seriously, that was nicely written. Thank you.

Lovely texts and superb photos. I hope to catch her fullness at least once tonight, but among the city lights and buildings, it's not easy!

Karen said...

Beautifully written and your captures are fascinating. I will be out tonight moon watching.

What a stunning string of photos! "doubling her beauty..." I loved that line. Fun to know that someone else was enjoying the same full moon. You captured its magic wonderfully.

As Green Goose said, "a stunning string of photos". I think you have quite the zoom lens! I am interested in knowing how you achieved getting the moon so big in your photos.

The words-sometimes hiding, sometimes revealing fit well today for me. Just a lovely post.
