Hazy Moon

Here is a monochromatic scene spotted through my kitchen window a couple of nights ago. A full moon softened by high cloud, peeks shyly from behind the macrocarpa.

Here's a lovely set of Tao words from Delwyn's blog, "A Hazy Moon" which was in my mind as I looked at this moonscape. She accompanies them with some of her own stunning imges here.

  1. I love the moon. I love the way you have captured it and linked it to the words.

  2. Thank you GB. The moon has been hanging in our skies since we first had eyes to discern it. It's not surprising we find it evocative.

  3. I like the picture. The words go very well with it. Wonderful words too :) Absolutely agree.
