"the moon looks upon many night flowers,
the night flowers see but one moon."
- jean ingelow
what i expected to see
what i saw instead
it's strange what perspective can do to one's perception of things. with all of the media hype yesterday, i expected to see a huge, gigantimongous glowing orb bouncing ponderously on the horizon....blotting out the surrounding sky. obscuring millions of stars. instead, i was presented with a moon like most others. distant. pale. diminutive.
i was disappointed.
perhaps i'll find the moon i was looking for in fragments and cloth when i get home tonight....
