Pic and a Word #230: My moon

Today was full of heavy stuff but ended with the moon floating above as if it were nothing. She is probably right.










It was a bad day after learning about killer hornets, reading a devastating report by a New York nurse, and watching the first half of even more devastating Michael Moore-produced Planet of the Humans.

I will watch the second half after I post this, even though I felt physically sick and had to stop a few times already. But it’s important that we watch it and discuss. It won’t matter much but we might feel better after.

But I also learned that a bird I often see but can never take a photo of it because it’s too fast is a hoopoe and not just some jay as I had thought.

What made me smile even more was this news: On my 50th birthday in two weeks, the moon, Venus and Jupiter will align to form a smiling face.

I could not hope for better symbolism. And then sister tells me that she has been saving this photo for a while, intending to send it to me the day before my birthday. ❤

And finally, here is my moon from tonight and a Planet of the Apes kind of poem.

My moon is monk.
My moon is key.
My moon is mon key.
Monkey is majmun*.

*Majmun (pronounced mymoon) is Croatian/Serbian etc. for monkey.

  1. I saw something similar once, about 12 years ago a 🙂 in the night sky. O
    It was really special and I can’t wait to see it again. I don’t know if I can see it in my end of the world but I will look for it! I hope you have a wonderful birthday even in these strange times.

    1. Ohh, you did, Amanda? Look, a sentence from the article this tweet links to: “Australia saw this event in 2008 at nighttime between 20h00 and 23h00 with Jupiter being the right eye and Venus being the left one.” This had to be it! And there were some people on FB thinking this was fake news. 🙂

      Thank you, I’ll make it happen. Besides, it doesn’t count until I can properly celebrate it with my people. 😉

      1. Yes. That was it. My memory even r remembered the number of years. I was working on a laboratory at the time at night and the boss rang to tell us to go and look outside at the star formation. The best and only fun time on that job!!

  2. I was not at all surprised to learn that the celestial bodies would align to smile down upon us on your birthday. That is exactly as the universe should be. And in return, your little gift of a poem was everything it should be.

Happy to learn the first thing on your mind.
