In the theatrical heavens
Up there in the sky
Is a slither of moon
Sitting there way up high

Right next to the stars
That are twinkling this night
Revealing her crescent
Of silver streaked light

And pulling and pushing
The tides too and fro
As she waxes and wanes
In her own nightly show

For Luna, dear Luna
Steels the stage to be fair
Captivating her audience
With her nightly affairs



The Night Sky

Look into the night sky and see a million stars
And think that without darkness
Their light would not be ours
Their radiance would simply not
Shine out so very bright
Without the black nocturnally
All stars would lose their fight

And likewise our adversities
Our toils and troubles too
May overwhelm and sometimes feel
Like they are what’s in view
But with a little confidence
And effort on our part
Our own lamps sparkle brilliantly
With truth held in our heart

And then it’s us that radiate
That shine and glisten more
Than any hassle, pain or strife
For as we brighten sure
The darkness round these other things
Just dissipates and goes
So that the million stars still shine
With the love we bestow

And throughout all the heavens
Down here upon the Earth
The beauty of such radiance
Is given a new birth
To brighten up the darkness
To shine through every night
With joy, and love and comfort sure
In effervescent light

The effect is created as the earth spins along its rotation with the camera fixed to a tripod. Photographing stars present many challenges to the photographer. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Crescent Moon (Haiku)

Sliver of silver
Hangs high in the sky tonight

Lunar Tides

The moon shines bright across the bay
Infusing light; enough to spy
The depths of shadows on the waves
Against the blackened azure sky

And dropping on the waves that break
Upon the shoreline constantly
A glistening spark from starlight bright
To twinkle there out on the sea

Amidst the dunes of windswept sand
The rustle of the dried out grass
The lunar creatures come to dance
And wait for night to turn and pass

And still the tides lap silently
Upon the beach in wait for day
As currents wax and wane in time
With moon that shines across the bay


Winter Solstice

Well that was such a short short day
Just where did it all go?
The moon rose quite late in the morn
And went down quick not slow
But what a spectacle it was
Up in the bright night sky
The stars a-shining out at once
A nebulous up high
And peaking from behind the clouds
The winter solstice moon
To herald in the shortest day
That came and went quite soon.
