The Fascinating Moon

I’ve always been fascinated with the moon ever since I was a little girl, and I’m not the only one.  Consider all the songs and poems that contain lines about the moon.  For example:

‘When the moon was in the Seventh House and Jupiter aligns with Mars’ – from “The Age of Aquarius”

‘The moon was a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas, The road was a ribbon of moonlight over the purple moor’. – from the poem “The Highwayman” by Alfred Noyes.

‘Moon River wider than a mile, I’m crossing you in style someday’ – from the theme song for ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’.

I often text friends and family when I see a beautiful moon especially if it’s a full one.  Recently a friend asked me why I loved the moon so much.  This is what I told her  . . .

  • It’s both mysterious and beautiful.
  • It changes but is still constant in its presence.
  • It is quietly powerful. I read once that sensitive equipment was able to detect a tide in a cup of tea.
  • No matter where one is in the world, it glows on us all.
  • It lights the darkness.
  • It connects people who love each other but are separated by distance.

So that’s why.  How do you feel about the moon?
