I think I’m officially obsessed with the moon. I’ve been anxiously waiting to witness his fullness since our last rendezvous. Constantly gazing up at the sky nightly. Perhaps it’s because my mind is completely free! No worries about anything or anyone. So as of late, I can’t help but notice and admire just the little things like the moon and stars. I can recall the places I’ve been each time I paused to look for him. He was merely a crescent when I was on a late night trek to my love just a few weeks ago and tonight as I drove home I was so excited to see him, all of him, once more. Hi, Mr. Moon!
“Was there always this much night? And didn’t the moon use to flirt with me from time to time? How do I cross this divide and will I ever know where you’re hiding? I am reaching with my fingers stretched.” –Tyler Knott Gregson
At 6:38 yesterday evening I glanced up at the sky on my way home and witnessed the full moon. This morning I was running a few minutes late. I looked up and saw Mr. Moon providing morning light while the sun slept in. I looked down at my clock and it read 6:38 am…
There is just something about the moon that just puts me in a trance. Its quite therapeutic. Like tonight, usually I catch the moon when I’m driving home. However, I’m driving west in the opposite direction and it seems as if the moon is directly in front of me. I know in essence it “moves” or rather the earth rotates and all that good stuff but there is something more comforting in believing that the moon simply follows and guides me. Especially in the wee hours of the night.
He’s just a half moon tonight yet still as gorgeous as the fullness I adore. Today has been a very great day full of blessings and new beginnings. I feel very much like the half moon tonight who hasn’t quite reached its full potential but I know that when it does it will shine so bright. I’ve peeled back another layer of myself and I can’t wait to eventually shine as bright as my full Mr. Moon. In the meantime, I’ll continue to admire and appreciate my half moon both literally and figuratively.
The moon is full tonight. Well at least it appears so visually. I am finally able to place my head in a clear space. I can now once again admire the beauty of my favorite masterpiece that I’ve admittedly neglected in recent months. Neglected because my focus was not on the present. Neglected because my thoughts were everywhere but within my own existence. But tonight I see you so clearly, Mr. Moon. I appreciate your beauty, your light and your grandiose presence. Your quiet stillness still enchants me and has a way of centering me. Oh how I love nights like these. Nights where my mind is completely free of worry or much else. Only thoughts and visions of you Mr. Moon and my incidental connection with the many beings that may have paused, if even for a moment, to also admire your beautiful existence tonight.
