Slip

Moon with Ocean
Those whose eyes refuse to see the sunshine will
Not see the moon rise slippery on the waters.
Evenings darken waves on oceans wild or still.

Before that night falls may my fresh eyes see
And not ignore the ancient moon that follows me.

Moon Rise

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.

  1. Your photos and words fit wonderfully together, I think your message is a reminder to appreciate the beauty before you. If you cannot see the sun how can you see the magic of the moon? It takes an open eye to truly see.

  2. Like others, this is a fine piece Frank – I focussed in on your choice of ‘slippery’ for the rising moon – it suggested to me both the elusive moon, and the moonlight flickering low across moving waters or tidal flats. So enjoyed this image and the whole shebang. Thanks for another terrific quad.
