Waxing Gibbous Moon
5 October 2014 – Photo by PH Morton

The moon and the stars,
Dew and rain,
Hills and alleys,
Fields and meadows,
In serving fishes, fowls and beasts,
Serve all the sons of Men
A new deep and richer way.
And in serving them, bless,
enrich, serve me, thy
servant.

Except from The Thanksgivings by Thomas Traherne

Waxing & Waning Gibbous Moon

This photo for me best characterise a beautiful quote from the great Nathaniel Hawthorne who said:

“Moonlight is sculpture.”

I think that was an apt description, looking at the amazing photo of the moon above which was courtesy of  Peter.

I can see the craters of the moon.

By the way last night, the moon was also on its waxing gibbous phase over London/UK and the industrious Peter had taken another fantastic photo.  I’ll ask him if I could add it here as well. 😉

Watch this space.
