Suspended...

18



...tonight's moon,
on its lofty perch within the branches of the old fir...
or so it seemed.

That owl...
just a figment of my imagination.
I like to think of them out there...flying soundlessly, unseen,
doing what owls do when the moon is full.

Spring seems to have arrived
and I'm no longer feeling caught between...

Thank you to Skeletal Mess for creating the 'old photo' texture
and to Matt Tillett for sharing his wonderful barn owl...

    1. The past three nights have been spectacular. So often we're buried under cloud cover - can't tell you how many full moons I've missed! - so what a treat to have successive shows.

    1. Just playing around with montaging images on top of each other...kindof crudely done, but it was FUN.
      Thanks, Deanna ;>}}

  4. pretty cool! I gazed at the moon last night up here on the hill and thought how amazing it is we all see the same moon. Quiet comfort.

    1. Indeed Nancy, indeed...I find that comfort, too. Makes it easy to understand how so much myth & legend has been wrapped around the moon.

  6. Yay! Yay! Yay! for not being caught in between.
    The change of seasons seem to affect me that way too.

    And the moon 'n' owl shot rocks.
    We have barn owls that sit in the maple tree outside of our bedroom and who-who-who-whoot sending Stella into a frenzy. I think they choose that spot cuz the mice feed on the scattered birdseed.

    Have a lovely Easter Weekend, Miss SP!

    1. Hope yours was lovely, too, Jen! Sunshine here, which kept me out in the garden for two days straight.
      Shall we say I am a tad sore? A wheelbarrow of manure seems a lot heavier in spring than say, September. HA.
      But the sweet peas are gonna love it even if my cranky bones did not ;>]]
      See ya for TT???

  7. O, we have seen that glorious moon, but at 6:30 in the AM it looks like we are watching an alien sky. It's been an amazing show that speeds along faster that you can believe.
