January’s Super Blue Blood Moon


Tomorrow the moon is in Taurus,
First Quarter,
a young lunar grows,
never to falter;
tomorrow waxes gibbous
moves to Gemini,
slight sliver of disk
sexy in night skies.
Oxygen, silicon,
other traces…
we speculate, appreciate,
as phases pass faces.

But tonight…
the full moon,
a lunar eclipse,
a blue moon,
and a supermoon
all happening
at once.

  3. Waxing poetic… Lovely Polly!


  4. I love your moon poems Polly! I learn a lot too! 😊


  5. Polly, “phases pass faces” plus the alliteration, a real winner. Love moongazing, always have. There is no obsession that doesn’t lead to art, so I’m all for obsessing… except when it leads to insomnia, like my post today. thanks for visiting and commenting, sorry I have not been productive of late, but this is a helluva a winter, yikes! Love your post. Amy


  6. Loving it. Really good.


  7. Have you heard of the hare in the moon. In many countries they celebrate a hare and not a man in the moon πŸ™‚
