Blue Moon Viewing

Blue Moon Viewing

Me, bundled up
You, in shorts and sandals
We walk to the hexagon to watch the moon rise

Me, practicing
You, humming that ballad
We snap photos, drink tea and amuse ourselves

Me, reading poems
You, sharing Thich Nhat Hanh
We welcome quiet and watch life move quickly slowly

Lovely! I certainly enjoyed this moon the last couple of nights. We walked out by the Columbia River and as it came up was huge and gorgeous! Love that you celebrated with tea. I celebrated getting mosquito bites.

If a series of characters and letters and spaces could be arranged into perfection, this is how it would read. Absolutely divine, Steph.

A beautiful poem --- and the moon has been pure delight! I especially enjoyed it this past week-end from our cabin. Zero lights --- except for the moon and a few twinkling stars. Just lovely!

I love the photo of you!

Lovely photos, and lovely poem. Your moon photography and Marilyn's were in sync.
