No It’s Not the Tip of a Q-tip
The Eclipsed Moon really was pink
I sat the alarm to get up for the eclipse and it was worth it. We stood on the deck shivering at 5AM to watch the last bit of white try to disappear from the already pink moon. That fingernail crescent on the moon didn’t quite go all the way away but I enjoyed the soft blurry glow in the sky. Perfect opportunity to photography blurry with an iPhone… Did anyone else see the shortest total eclipse of the century?
Why I appreciate This Weeks Challenge
Blurry has been how I’ve seen the world most of my life because of astigmatism. In art history I totally understood the Impressionists or should I say they got me.

There will be an eclipse of the Moon here on the West Coast US on Saturday April 4 at 5:05 AM PST. Believe it or not this full moon is call a Pink Moon…
Full moons in 2015 From NASA
Full moon names date back to Native Americans. Some tribes kept track of the seasons by giving distinctive names to each recurring full moon. Their names were applied to the entire month in which each occurred.

Super Full Moon in a Rabbit
All Summer long absorbing sun flowers
Grow strong from seed to seed,
Ripe full moon waits Her turn
behind mist and fog,
Which Summer’s delights
Will you carry with you from light
into the dark?
This is Lens and Pens macro photography challenge but I suspect this is as close to the moon I will get so please indulge me for including the one shot I’m happy to have captured of last nights Super Full Moon before she was engulfed in clouds.

I was told and told every one to get up in the middle of the night to see the blood moon during a total eclipse. All I saw fog. What should I expect living in an area famous for its “fog on little cat feet?”T he sky was blood-red through the clouds for a moment or two. Because my view was so limited last night, it seems right that today’s poem would have the constraint of the:
Prisoner Poem “Imagine a prisoner whose supply of paper is restricted. To put it to fullest use, he will maximize his space by avoiding any letter extending above or below the line (b,d,f,g,h,j,k,l,p,q,t and y) and use only a,c,e,i,m,n,o,r,s,u,v,w,x and z. Compose a poem using only words that can be made from these letters AND which you source from your newspaper text.”
