Reflective Day

I haven’t done much on my blog today but would like to share our walk last night with you.

It was a really pleasant evening, not too late, but not early.
The moon was full, but the sky was unusual………. and totally awesome.
Even if we’d had the camera, we could not have captured its mysterious beauty.
The sky was dark, but the moon seemed to be hiding behind strata of pink candy floss.
There was one section of really dense cloud running almost at right angles to it, as if someone had torn a hole in the sky.

Hubby and I have both tried to find a picture similar to what we saw last night and come up empty.
He has however worked some of his photoshopping magic and generated a picture that is quite lovely, though not a patch on last night.


A moon in full glory,

Dressed to kill,
Shining bright amidst the dark.
Shimmering on rippled water,
A path just visible,
Hinting at a mystery below.
Layers of pink and purple
Alternately shielding and hiding
Your silver orb of magic.
Will you dance on the surface,
Dipping your toes in a metallic sea,
Swirling your candied skirts
To the rhythm of the waves
Or the beat of a heart
That gazes in wonder and awe.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I don’t think we can ever capture some of the wonderful skies.
