Notice the Moon

When I walked out to my car this morning, I noticed the crescent moon shining brightly over the field across from our row of houses.

At first, I saw a halo around the moon, and I thought, “Well, I’d better enjoy today, because it’s going to rain in 3 days.” (science class flashback: precipitation usually occurs 3 days after seeing a halo around the moon.) I looked up again at the southern sky. I looked at that halo more closely.

The circle seemed almost like a rainbow: the inside, closest to the moon, was white. As it spread out, it turned slate, and then white again. It was like a painter was trying to blend the colors together. Then on the outside, I squinted because I couldn’t believe it. I saw a variegated pink outline. Amazing! The moon had caught my eye, but I stopped to pay attention. Dr. Beers would be proud of me, as I “noticed and noted” this moment in time.

  1. You are living like a writer! Congratulations – I’ll look to the skies for inspiration, too!

  2. I guess I will have to get up and check out the moon tomorrow. That sounds like an awesome sight. Stop and notice, then write. Simple formula, but difficult to put into practice.

  3. I love the little details you’ve included. I’m inspired to seek out the moon for myself tonight!
