This was my only view of the harvest moon,
low cloud to the east obscured the moonrise all month.
I waited & waited, then she took me by surprise
& I fluffed the first shot!

Decked in finest evening dress, she made a rapid entrance
and my heart raced.

Although i had my thoughts & shared a silent communion,
it's the words of others that come to mind as i write now...
Annoyingly Chris De Burgh...
I've never seen you looking so lovely as you did tonight...
There's nobody here, it's just you and me...
I'll never for get, the way you look tonight...

But also a favourite poem of mine
by Mel Leavey
sisters of the red moon
we have met before, you and isomewhen, somewhere.in time out of time, the space between,the space where the veil thins and the mist floats acrossmoonlit oceans.
in the swirling chaos of now,tendrils of light flicker in the darkness.reminders of a lost tribe,of ancient ways where blood was holyand wisdom shared.
reaching across the chasm of time.over expanse of space and the shackles of fatethere is hope that in the dreamingof this and other things, we shall meet again.somewhen, somewhere.
An interpretation of mine is here.
This was also the last time I saw the moon at night...
cloud has been the norm
& somehow the words aren't flowing tonight!
