I’ve never actually witnessed the setting of a full moon.
And as you can see, I was not alone this morning for the setting of Super Moon at Forest Beach.
“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!
I personally love the intimacy of a full moon rising over the marsh. With tall marsh grass and cedar trees framing its ascent.
Oh, to know such freedom!
And their meeting became the next act in some grand celestial drama…
The moon continued to rise, swept up into darkening clouds…
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.
“Yeah we all shine on, like the moon, and the stars, and the sun.” John Lennon
‘Been following this moon for days, hoping for clear skies tonight.
And standing there at Forest Beach, up it came like a molten ball of lava. Rising right up over the chimney tops, lifting up, up, up.
Rise up, rise up, it said to me.
More tomorrow… ‘Night Super Moon.
