Howling Wolf Moon

eer_0672

Last night we experienced a unique Lunar Eclipse. Our January (winter) Blood Moon, or Wolf Moon, occurred with the red phase around midnight. It was directly overhead, so not as big as if it had just come over the horizon. I shot several photos with my 200mm zoom lens, but not having a tripod left my images quite shaky. I liked the effect and am sharing them with you in my post today!

Wolf Moon brilliant white

Earth hides sun // Moon turns to Blood

Keeps running circles ’round us

Nothing Lost in Translation

IMG_3058

Words, as powerful as they are,  lack something when translated. Earlier this week there was a discussion at d’Verse Poetry Pub about the difficulty in translating poetry from one language to another. To me, it is almost impossible to translate accurately even when getting all the words correct. In some instances there are no words to translate an expression of a given language. When it comes to nature…

Nothing is Lost in Translation

They say, “A picture is worth a thousand words!”

Which shows that only words

    can be lost in translation

But the best poetry of all is nature in full array

A sunset //a mountain vista // a flower in bloom

In the poetry of God // nothing is lost in translation

Butterfly Morning in a Garden of Flowers

EER_0533

My friend Bob invited me to his house this morning to see the butterflies and flowers he has in the backyard.  His flowers were dazzling and the butterflies were beautiful. As they flitted from Zinnia to Zinnia, I snapped away. These are only a few of the beautiful shots I got this morning. This is definitely poetry in motion and no further words are needed!  Enjoy!!
