Moon — #writephoto

Sue Vincent's #writephoto prompt - fog

Some would say they know the Moon.
They’ve data they can show,
But when they look
And close the book,
What is it that they know?

  1. Hmmmm, I don’t know one person that does that. I do know lots of folks that supplement moon gazing with all sorts of other knowledge. But closing the book or the computer screen is a very good idea.

  2. Yes Frank, you put your finger on something telling here.The moon has always had the power somehow to suggest more than it shows – by comparison – even the fabled sun (glorious and inspiring as it is…) is somewhat two dimensional. Thank you so much for taking me to that thought…

  3. Once I believed the moon had a man in it made of cheese, then later I read where hidden UFO bases put ET’s closer to us in order to fulfill the promise President Truman made with them in 1947 after Roswell–they get to abduct and experiment on us, and the government received alien technology–making me believe that half of the UFO sightings are of “made in America” crafts–I certainly saw one 5 miles out of China Lake Naval Weapons Center at 3am along highway 395 in 1984., between Redlands and Ridgecrest, CA

    1. You saw a UFO? I kind of wish I saw one, but I don’t want them to see me. I think I remember the idea that there were alien bases on the far side as well and that’s how we got our technology. Thanks, Glenn!

  5. I echo Dan – in most things we think we know, we know only the extent of our knowledge but often refuse to accept our limitations…
    Marry Christmas Frank!

    1. As a mathematician I can see the set of data collected as something to work with in a model, but all that data is an abstraction of what the moon really is. I’m glad you liked this, Jilly!

  6. I fairly certain, Frank, that all one ever needed to know about the moon can be heard at the very end of the classic rock album, Dark Side of the Moon. Nevertheless, a thoughtful and well-turned write!
