The Moon, The Clouds & The Sun

The Moon, The Clouds & The Sun

You tried to hide your face from my searching eyes
Withholding your soft light from guiding my way
Jumping behind clouds to remain hidden from view
Not even the stormy clouds could hide you forever
But I caught your full moon as you greeted the horizon

Then you stubborn clouds that had tried to hide the moon
Changed your allegiance to protect the rise of the sun
As night turned to day you shielded the sun from my eyes
You danced across the skies, such a graceful distraction
But for all your beauty you failed to cage the sun today

I searched for your face, which was hidden beyond the clouds
Your fury burned a fiery red, reflecting in the skies above
The floating prison was gradually prised open by your might
Your platinum light broke through, colliding with the water
Finally you climbed above the clouds to illuminate my day

The Moon

Well, last night it rained and rained hard, the temperature is up today, so the snow has now gone.  It was great whilst it lasted, but now back to normality, rainy old England.

This morning’s walk was one of the best ones I have taken, if you didn’t know it was a full moon last night, so whilst walking I witnessed the full moon disappear over the horizon to the west and the sun rise above the horizon to the east, is there a better way to start the day?

I did take a few photos of the moon, but as my camera is not really suited to night photography they aren’t that great, but it does make them more atmospheric.
