Upon arrival of the full sprouting grass moon

Spread the love

I must confess that spectral appearance
reddened by the gracious moon
draped
over the sky would never escape my memory,
this is something
that you can’t describe nor share the experience with anyone.
What binds us to life?
What conjures the milky stars?
What distinguishes us from other living creatures?
I would never figure out.

  1. What distinguishes us from other living creatures? A most apt question for this picture. The fact that we are human in itself distinguishes us – animals are real in their emotions and humans can be so very false.

  2. Your hare contemplates as we do the mysteries of life and what brings these thoughts to our minds more than a fell moon on a clear night. A lovely poem. 🙂

  3. You raise some very deep questions…..I do so wish you’d venture an answer 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  4. And why does the moon appear to be larger when it is near the horizon? (Answer: No one knows.) I like your series of questions.
    ..

  5. Love it from beginning to end. There are questions that never lead us to answers, but when they are ones of wonder I don’t mind. It just keeps me in a galaxy of imagination.
