Celestial damsels of the night....

A 4 am dawn blue moon, captured by my friend Ernestine from the Southeastern part of the US. Read about that journey here.

A cold draught
across the clouds
and she wakes up
and appears
at the sky window
messing up
while trying
push back
her tousled hair
from her face,
in the light
of the lamp powered by the Sun....

stretching their veins
and shrugging off the dew;
branches shivering
in the early dawn,
she hears the far away chirping
of the birds,
takes a resigned breath,
taps a cloud
in reassurance
and carries on
to her hilly abode....

Celestial Damsels
of the Night
dont participate
in competitions
with the Sun....


  1. Another beautiful one!! The moon was so gorgeous here on Saturday in between all the stormy clouds and I managed to catch it. Couldn't believe it turned out as well as it did. Hope your week is off to a good start! Enjoy!
