“Those are the same stars, and that is the same moon, that look down upon your brothers and sisters, and which they see as they look up to them, though they are ever so far away from us, and each other.” – Sojourner Truth
I still can’t believe we got to see the rising of Super Moon last night.
The forecast was calling for heavy cloud cover and just one town over the clouds had already moved in.
But here at Forest Beach in South Chatham the moon pushed aside the gathering clouds and rose up over the rooftops. Gifting us with a moon rise for the ages!
Now some love to see the moon rising over the sea.
I personally love the intimacy of a full moon rising over the marsh. With tall marsh grass and cedar trees framing its ascent.
And last night, standing there at the marsh’s edge, I held my breath as I watched this great golden orb shake loose the horizon and all things earthly, lifting free into the welcoming night sky.
Oh, to know such freedom!
Yet almost as soon as it had broken free, our Super Moon met with the clouds that floated above it.
And their meeting became the next act in some grand celestial drama…
The moon continued to rise, swept up into darkening clouds…
That finally covered it from view.
As we headed to the car we could see the clouds moving over the face of the moon…
But lingering for just one moment more I saw the clouds part, ever so briefly, to give us one last look at the glory of Super Moon’s before it disappeared altogether.
Thank you for visiting and inspiring us, Super Moon. ‘Til we meet again.
“Yeah we all shine on, like the moon, and the stars, and the sun.” John Lennon
