Invitation

Quickly.

Quickly now - up into the field with me - and see. The moon, not yet quite full, hung huge and low on the horizon - burntorangeblacksky. So beautiful, so strange, tears prick my eyes.

I am looking at it here too. Extraordinary.

We watch it sail slowly over treetops and over the house - the smart people who built this house angled the big second story window to catch the full moon.

Your invitation is beautifully expressed. I know that feeling of seeing something natural, fleeting, and just wanting to let others know what they also might rejoice to see.

How lovely. Here I would have to drive somewhere to see the August moon so early; instead I must wait till almost bedtime when it rises beyond the trees and houses, having lost its colour. Another reason to leave the city!

Wish you'd shouted louder....I missed it.

Saw it briefly in the garden last night. Beautiful, and so still. (Of course you know it's your very own moon - full moon in Aquarius, this month. Hope you made a wish.)

Sounds beautiful! :)

Missed it. What was I doing. But I have seen it often. That large and mysterious moon lumbering into the sly like a fully laden 747, but silent, and drawing behind it every tide on earth.

Keeps us on an even keel.

That's the main thing.
