The Moon and Venus


“The moon stays bright when it doesn’t avoid the night.” — Rumi I was just sitting there. I looked up. I saw a quarter moon and a bright, glowing star. Since I made this picture with a smartphone, the quarter moon turned round, And, the star wasn’t a star at all. It was the planetContinue reading “The Moon and Venus”
