"M" is for Moon

I don't want to miss my "M" post today!  So I want to share one of my very favorite things, the moon!
This is a full moon! I like to see the moon shine down on us when it is full. Sometime in the Autumn it looks like a ball of orange fire! So exciting and beautiful!

"And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also."  Genesis 1:16

Did you know that the moon may appear blue after a volcanic eruption? This moon is lovely.
I think this moon looks like a bowling ball! Shiny and gorgeous!

"From The Rime of The Ancient Mariner"
By Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1824)

The moving moon went up the sky.
And nowhere did abide:
Softly she was going up,
And a star or two beside.

This moon is setting against a lone tree. Reminds me of the upcoming fall and cooler weather.

The last photo image from google sets the mood for a fun children's nursery rhyme from the 1700's

Hey diddle diddle
The cat and the fiddle
The cow jumped over the moon
The little dog laughed to see such a sport
And the dish ran away with the spoon!

I hope you enjoyed my moon tonight! Please visit Ms. Jenny and all the Alphabe Thursday's folks! We have so much fun and always learn something new!

Please read my previous post. I would greatly appreciate you if you did that for me!
