  1. Every time I see the moon in the morning sky, I think of a description in a short story by Flannery O’Connor: “The pale, useless moon.” That’s always stuck with me for some reason. Great poem, David πŸ™‚

  2. Oh it’s beautiful! Simple few lines but reading it creates a beautiful aura! Loved it! ❀️

    And hey, I’ve nominated you further for the Sunshine Blogger Award with my set of questions. Will be very eagerly waiting for your answers to them!

    1. Thank you so much, Ahiri – you’re very kind! Unfortunately, I don’t participate in blogger awards, but I truly appreciate your nomination.

      Yours,
      David

        1. You are welcome πŸ™‚

          BTW, please feel free to call me ‘David’ because that is my first name. The word ‘ben’ means ‘son of’ in Hebrew. I know my pen name is confusing… I’m sorry!

          πŸ’–
          David

          1. Oh okay! Actually I wasn’t really in knowing terms with Hebrew 😊!
            Well fine, David πŸ˜‰!

            And hey! Don’t say sorry.. here’s nothing to feel sorry about 😊

      1. My head is crammed with useless information. There’s a group of hopeful skywatchers who speculated we’ll get to see Betelgeuse go supernova next year, because it recently dimmed. But, the general consensus holds that the dimming was a cyclical event that occasionally happens to Betelgeuse, and that Betelgeuse will explode anytime within the next hundred thousand years. I had been in the hopeful camp, but I’m not an astronomer of any stripe or caliber. I just think it’s cool that there’s a small chance the moon might have some competition for a few months within in our lifetimes.
