that will save
 and transform
 the world."

Is Your Moon Lazy?

A  L  O  H  A !

Moon by Akira Kosemura on Grooveshark

Evening brings love,
Night brings rest

 ‘De Halve Maan’ (The Half Moon) Brewery, Bruges since 1856 

It also welcomes the Moon

 in every guise

Asian People see the Moon Rabbit

pounding the elixir of immortality

from the  lunar cassia tree

Here the shy  crescent in my shot.

 " Moon! Moon!
 I am prone before you.
 Pity me, 
and drench me in
 loneliness. "

Amy Lowell

“In the crook of the crescent moon 

sits the Holy Lady,

 with strong muscles and a merciful heart.

 She kicks her splendid legs 

like the moon is her swing 

and the sky, her front porch.” 

 Rebecca Wells
Divine Secrets of the YA-YA Sisterhood

So Why is the moon 

that I'm shooting

 laying back,

while the classic crescent moon 

depicted in Europe

is vertical?

Our blog friend, Reader Wil

explains that

the closer you get

to the equator

the more horizontal

the moon reposes.

Who Knew? !

I must have noticed this

when I moved to Hawaii

a quarter century ago

but never realized this fact

until now!

How often, 

I wonder,


things and people

we see every day

carry wonders


we never notice?
