Pray to the Moon when She is round,
Luck with you will then abound,
What you seek for shall be found
On the sea or solid ground.

Flower Moon: Just Me & My Boys.

Flower Moon rises from the clouds.

Prepared with Gluten-free Mexican Chocolate Brownie (made with a fresh goose egg, i.e., a "Super-egg") & Kahlúa, I awaited Her arrival with much excitement. 

However, Her timing complicated small persons' bedtime routines. In the end, my Little Lad & The Changeling joined me on the East steps to watch Her break free from the fleecy wisps in the night sky.

What magnificence.


The Changeling fell asleep in my arms, so the Little Lad & I carried him to bed. When we were certain he was snug & secure, we returned together to the porch to light a candle for the Healer who lost her mother & all those who find themselves living in the NICU. Little Lad watched for meteors -- with little luck in such a bright & dappled sky -- while I snapped photos between "ooohs" & "ahhhs." When the Lad began to droop before the flame, I took him to bed & made certain he was snug & secure.

One final return to the place that is the Night Altar. I paused awhile, simply to watch Her seraphic dance with the clouds. All the weariness of the day could not sully that inimitable moment.
