Monday WRites 79

[supermoon wall paper from google dot com]

silent in her awesome grandeur, supermoon
she holds my attention with such ease
i join her in signing an unspoken tune
and watch as she charms night shadows
for here she is again in grandeur, supermoon
bold enough, she shames the night globes
turned on to showings of short-lived swoon
for moon is chameleon, and mistress of shaping
cloud, sky, and human wandering strewn
she who courts the sky and tides of oceans too
wide girth this night in awesome grandeur, supermoon

When the Earth, sun and moon line up during the ‘perigee’ side of the lunar orbit, we get a ‘perigee moon’ or supermoon...Perigee full moons can appear up to 14 percent bigger and 30 brighter than apogee full moons, and often create the optical illusion of a ‘low-hanging’ moon.

Apogee and perigee refer to the distance from the Earth to the moon.
