SkyWatch - A Golden Pumpkin Moon


The night before last, the full moon rose as a majestic 
golden ball


with clouds about,
it was now you see it, now you don't


yet even with obscuring clouds, 
it glowed like a pumpkin in the sky.


When your heart beats like an erratic kettle drum, it is not
easy to keep the hands steady.

  10. That's a shot to which blur lends itself exceedingly well! Photographic error is only in the eye of the pedantic!!

  13. The blur, whether caused by erratic clouds or erratic heartbeats, adds a touch of mystery to the rising moon.

  18. I have seen an orange tangerine moon but a golden pumpkin moon is the first to me. With such a zooming, you can’t keep your hands steady especially when you’re so excited.

    Wish you a peaceful Christmas and a healthy New Year, arija.
