Send Me The Moon

It's been several years since I've even bothered to photograph the moon, but somehow, last Friday, with the Full Supermoon looming and illuminating the backyard, I pulled out the tripod. The moon shone so brightly that I thought my kids had left the back porch light on.

Send Me the Moon

This is the time I miss having a 300mm lens and a cropped framed sensor, but zoomed in at 100%, there is still nice detail. I just missed the delicate veil of wispy clouds that quickly passed across the moon's face - something to lend some more interest to the shot, which looks just like the moons I've shot before. But I guess there is always next month.

I've been working on some poetry, and have one verse that ran through my head as I moon-gazed.

Full Moon low in the sky
Shadows move with every stride
Warm breath escapes as I
See the Cold Air Rise


And then this song came up on my iPhone as I drove to work and it was perfect.


"Send Me The Moon" - Sara Bareilles

Holding my breath
Last one I’ve got left
'til I see you

Deliver my heart with the
Pieces and parts of me left
Every last day seemed to carry the weight
A life time
Watch from the ground
As the gold fluttered down from the sky

Sweet sun
Send me the moon
Empty the skies out
Bringing me one step closer to you
Send it soon
And I will breathe in, breathe out
Until you come in and out
Of view
Of view

Inches away from you
Scared what I’ll take from you, darling
I can live with your ghost
If you say that’s the most I’ll get

Darkness to light
Moved from day into night to be near you
Still here I stand
I am sinking like sand in your sea

Sweet sun
Send me the moon
Empty the skies out
Bringing me one step closer to you
Send it soon
And I will breathe in, breathe out
Until you come in and out
Of view
Of view

You already do
Never you mind where the evening should find us
Together
Distance can’t take what is hidden here
Safe in my chest

I’ll wait for the day when
We finally say now or never
Till then I’ll be here wanting more
As I settle for atmosphere

Sweet sun
Send me the moon
Empty the skies out
Bringing me one step closer to you
Send it soon
And I will breathe in, breathe out
Until you come in and out
Of view
Of view
