Be Confident!

As if the world isn’t already in frightening, full tilt, yet another gorgeous Supermoon arrives to nudge the sleeping lunatics…

She winks sleepily and you smile,

she seems so sultry, mysterious…

2221EF16-07E4-4189-9828-5F1F9C6FBB8F

Hiding behind the veil of her Daughter’s world,

shyly she teases your senses…

You watch, mesmerized, as she

slips into view, breathlessly anticipating

her full magnificence.

But….

 

Beware! 89F061BB-385D-4DA3-9FCB-0A32DA867431

Her powers are ancient and most are overwhelmed by them.

Be confident! Walk on…or run!

Elusive, ephemeral..

The tease

oh please!

By heaven’s grace

let me see your face!

My soul and yours…

We glow in night’s embrace,

but disappear without a trace

when the sun shows Its face-

too soon forgotten.

 

Life’s moments,

like dewdrops

cling

to silken webs-

iridescent pearls,

the Spinner’s homage to

Mother Nature-

breathtaking,

heartbreaking,

fragile.

The Super Moon was gorgeous but with the rain clouds, the light kept shifting, making it nearly impossible to get the shot I wanted. These were the best she would allow.

 

 

 

 

 

 

She Howled!

Last night’s Super Blood Wolf moon was magnificent. I got the best shots I could without putting up the tripod.

She glowed, she blushed, her face was flushed,

In frigid dark my work was rushed.

Yet here she is. If you only remember one thing, let it be this:

Never piss off the Lunar Goddess”.

She will scowl and howl,

infest your soul, her touch as cold

as night’s unsympathetic hand

waves over the land,

the spell is cast.

Lincoln Church/#Thursday Doors

Unlike my tenacious blogging buddy, Dan Antion, I don’t have a lot of research to add to this week’s door photo. The First Plymouth Church of Lincoln was beautiful and peaceful. My new daughter-in-law and dear friend introduced us to it while on an evening walk during our recent trip to Lincoln for their wedding. She thought I would like it. I loved it! Just click on the link above to find out more about the services and mission statement.

From their website:

“First Plymouth Congregational church is a merger of two congregations.  On the morning of Sunday, August 19, 1866, First Congregation was organized in what was then known as Lancaster, Nebraska.  It was and is the first congregation to be organized in the town.  One year later, the name of the town was changed to Lincoln. 

In 1869, the congregation completed its first building, a 25 by 40 foot structure at 13th and L streets where the Cornhusker Hotel is now located.  The congregation grew and prospered along with the city…”

There are now two locations of the church.

The church is broadly diverse and non-denominational with intricate architectural accents-a work of art canvased against a bright Nebraska skyline.  There is even a sitting garden with a wall of internment memorials, simple yet significant.

I am sharing it here along with a few other images from our walk. Happy Friday my friends. It has been a long week now that I am once again so away far from my precious treasures…

 

It was a nice evening for a walk. The church was only a few blocks away which gave us a chance to enjoy the beautiful old homes and landscape. Eventually the church rose ahead of us, partially hidden in the shade of the trees.

 

 

Hayley tells me the bells ringing on Sunday morning is really beautiful. I am sorry I missed that.

The tower was so impressive. I am not certain who the images are but perhaps saints or famous religious figures.

I love the quote over the door

The garden has a beautiful view of the distant skyline and is very peaceful.

 

 

As a photographer, it was the architectural details that really caught my eye.  If you ever get to Lincoln, you should at least drive by for a visit.

With the sun setting, we took a few more photos and headed home.  We had a wedding to be ready for!  Next time…..

Pink Moon and Me

Some things don’t need a lot of explanations; but my feverish need to complete this art piece became all too clear after we watched the ten o’clock news and found out tonight was the full “Pink moon”. Yeah, so I’m a Cancer. Like I said, it explains a lot about the last few days.

Welcome to today’s rainbow moment. 😏

Random wall rainbow. I should have noted the sign…

I couldn’t stop ‘tweaking’ but this is pretty much the final piece.

Tonight’s full pink moon but I was about an hour late for the color event.

I just had to get these two ladies together

 

I hope everyone has a wonderful week. Don’t let this one pull your strings too tightly. 😉💕

PS I named the piece Midnight Flight of the Faeries. Guess I may change it to Pink Flight at Midnight. 😊
