After a day of grey skies, heavy cloud and almost continuous snow, we have a night of clear skies with a full moon. The result, of course, is a significant drop in a temperature which has already not risen much above freezing all day, turning our ungritted side streets into rivers of ice.
Moonlight streaming down,
Peeps through trees with frosted fronds.
Cold, clear Winter night.
Fortunately, I don't think I need to use the car at all tomorrow :)
I wonder if the moon was shining that first Christmas night, when a young girl and her betrothed sank gratefully into the shelter of a stable, after a long and arduous journey.
Full moon, hanging, still
Shadowed patches, quiet eyes
Silent watcher waits.
And what a wonderful end to the waiting!
I'm linking this post to Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday with many thanks for the privilege of being part of such a brilliant meme and 'meeting' with such a great bunch of people. Happy Christmas to one and all and a special "Thank you!" to Jenny for being such a fantastic host.
