Red Moon Rising

Red moon rising over ice-covered peak No warming sun to charge my thermal wear A glacial bleakness brings blush to my cheek, Red moon rising over ice-covered peak Focal point in desolate landscape, so to speak, Helping me to understand the meaning of bare Red moon rising over ice-covered peak No warming sun to charge my thermal wear.

Thanks. Believe it or not, it was a picture that popped up on my scene when I turned my computer on. Then, I found out a red moon was actually appearing somewhere in the world.

It's an almost apocalyptic vision, red moon, the cold in the mountains... A dreamlike but real picture.

It is sort of surreal, isn't it? Thanks so much, Marco.

The red moon is going to be visible here between 10:30 and 12 tonight. The skies are clear so far. I'll try to keep my peaks warm though. LOL

I hope you do get to see it. A red moon always fascinates me.

They say there's a red moon tonight but grey clouds are in the way. Got up early a few years ago to watch an eclipse and it was an enjoyable experience as I watched the moon turn a blood red. Tom
