The Moon - Senryu.



The Moon brings me light

Its beauty shines all around

Lighting up my life

    Thanks for reminding me you are a loony. It doesn't show. Fortunately for the crater good of mankind. (not a fan of these mathematical constructs).

      Thanks da, I always try to surprise people.


      Wonderful symbiosis of a personally generated POEM 'n PIC ! Science cannot give a definitive answer for the exact and complementary dimensions of the Earth / Moon system ~ or how the Moon was formed ! It is much bigger and closer than one would expect ! Venus has no Moon and Mars two small ones the size of the Isle of Wight ! The BIBLE says GOD created a Greater Light (The SUN) to govern the Day ~ and a Lesser Light (The MOON) to govern the Night. Each light has a separate role and I thanks GOD for them every day ~ AMEN ~ Thanks for highlighting the MOON ~ BRIAN

      Well penned, and it is lighting up our lives when we need it most: During dark times!
      Incredible picture! You must have one heck of a camera. Was it taken through a telescope?

        Thank you Fred, the light is always there.

        No just a 500x lens on the camera.
