Quote 8 March 2012

Above the tower - a lone, twice-sized moon.

On the cold river passing night-filled homes,

It scatters restless gold across waves...

Empty peaks, silence: among sparse stars,

Not yet flawed, it drifts. Pine and cinnamon

Spreading in my old garden.... All light,

All ten thousand miles at once in its light!

~Tu Fu, "Full Moon," translated by David Hinton

For tonight's full moon

It looked like it was right over the ocean here.

Lovely, wished I could see the moon like that. In a build-up area you have just street lights and advertising maring the heavenly show.

I was up very early this morning and after reading your quote, I went looking for the moon and I found it hanging very low and shining through my apple tree. That's the first time my apple tree have grown moon beams.
Thanks for the early post.
