Passages of the Moon- Presents and Presence

 

Moon over Asheville Mountiain Tops

Passages of the Moon- 

We reflect the passages of the moon in all her tones and glory
as told in long-ago sage's stories of snowy nights when she disappeared,
and witnessed in December's 2010 lunar blackout,
the first, they say, in six hundred years.

We mirror the phases of moonshine-
as do August's waterfalls, giants roaring down the rockside,
or the wee winged creatures living in the woods,
who turn to hide on the quiet side of her silver orb.

We transform as Diana the Huntress sculpts in black and glimmer.
We find,as the demilune skips along the river,
that we are like tiny bits of shimmer,
turning with a waxing sphere,
circling, streaming, refracting through the trees,
feeling all of life must be before us,
but so light, we are the mere suggestion of a breeze.

 Rest your eyes  upon our communal celestial jewel.
Draw vision and meaning from her comings and goings,
    for to  run with her in the heavens
is to wrap yourself in the present
and presence
that is Luna's blessing
right here on Earth.

The beautiful pic mad me think of this:

New International Version
Lift up your eyes to the heavens, look at the earth beneath; the heavens will vanish like smoke, the earth will wear out like a garment and its inhabitants die like flies. But my salvation will last forever, my righteousness will never fail.

 Thanks for your kind words. The photo was taken on a clear night here in Asheville...and right from my cabin in the mountainside.

Thank you. I took the photo while holding my breath...I was holding it because the scene was so beautiful, and I was trying to hold my little camera as still as possible.  =)

PS I have to hold my breath at such beautiful sights here in Asheville quite often.

JaneAnne, absolutely beautiful as well as the words. Thank you.  As a child I always loved watching the moon, and still do.

What a beautiful poem and even more captivating photo :) I am a huge fan of the moon and it's cycles.  I'm actually working on a painting based on this topic :)

Hi janeAnne,

That photo is very good and creates a stunning vision of the moon and the cloud. Giving even some color to the dark sky. Well done! The accompanying words about the Passage of the Moon compliment the photo very well.

What a gorgeous photograph.  I find that good pictures after dark are incredibly difficult.
