Sunday 160 - Pierced

A sliver pierced my eye 
but I felt only admiration. 
There was beauty and awe not pain. 
I reached out through the blackness 
unable to remove the celestial curve.

You took the deep route this week, I see. Whenever you strive to reach the moon and miss, keep trying. Eventually you'll get there!

Here's mine. Thanks for hosting.

I was looking at the moon yesterday night while working on my paper, and it made me want to go out on a date that was not. :-l

This one is different MM!
Yes, the moon does look different ever since it hit us at the nearest orbital point! Or is it my imagination?
