Moon over Stillwaters!

Moon over Stillwaters!

Full moon shining over Stillwaters
Full Moon Over Colonial Residence in Stillwaters Estates.

I took this photo Tuesday evening about 9 p.m. and was surprised when it turned out!  The full moon has been spectacular this week.  Here is an ode to the moon.

The Moon
by Robert Louis Stevenson
The moon has a face like the clock in the hall;
She shines on thieves on the garden wall,
On streets and fields and harbour quays,
And birdies asleep in the forks of the trees.

The squalling cat and the squeaking mouse,
The howling dog by the door of the house,
The bat that lies in bed at noon,
All love to be out by the light of the moon.

But all of the things that belong to the day,
Cuddle to sleep to be out of her way;
And flowers and children close their eyes
Till up in the morning the sun shall arise.

Enjoy the week ahead!

Quote of the week:

Shoot for the moon and if you miss you will still be among the stars.
Les Brown
