Small Stones: Moon Gazing...

Small Stones #31
I love gazing at the moon and imagining things
Could new worlds exist there?
Could we travel in our minds and meet lifeforms there?
Outside my home, the moon beckoned
I followed and captured these shots...
A branch leaned in for a look in #2
Distant stars showed up as red flecks...
Good night Moon, Good bye Stones...

Small Stones: Moon Gazing...

Small Stones#31
Just like the waxing and waning of the moon
Things shift in our lives
Small Stones end as a daily tonight...
We meet again only on Small Stones Sundays
They have shone a bright light on my world
For that I am thankful...
I will continue my other writings
Good night Moon, Adios Small Stones...

What are small stones?
  According to the originators of this wonderful exercise, a small stone is a short piece of writing (prose or poetry) that precisely captures a fully-engaged moment. The process of discovering small stones is as important as the finished product. Searching for small stones will encourage you to keep all your senses; - your eyes,(and ears, nose, mouth, fingers, feelings and mind) open.

Some Food for Thought: How do you view the moon ?  Take a moment to contemplate what the moon means to you? Love and Peace in 2013.

I would love to hear from you: Please leave me a comment. Thank You!

  1. "There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls."
    George Carlin
    Happy weekend to you! :-)

  2. Both the sets flow spontaneously, effortless, beautiful.

  3. When my nephew was smaller, we bonded at times by watching the moon and talked about it too :) It was fun to listen to a kid's musings.

  4. these small stones are like priceless gems, small in size but of great hidden value, thank you for sharing such lovely thoughts Eliz:)

  5. A family friend once told me that whenever I feel alone and homesick, all I have to do is to gaze at the moon and remember a line from a song "somewhere out there, beneath the pale moonlight, someone's thinking of me and loving me tonight".

  6. I also love looking at the moon especially when its full moon. I imagine it smiling at me, hehe.

  13. Thoughts like this also come to my mind... I also like moongazing!

  14. Lovely moons ... really beautiful :-)

  15. When I look up and gaze at the moon my inner self relaxes and I felt like transforming into a new being.. hehehe.. parang werewolf.

  16. I love just staring blankly at the moon and receiving its glory and blessings.


  17. i love to gaze at the moon as well and I remember the movie the guardians where the owlets are forced to sleep under the moon and moon blinking them.

  27. One of my dreams in photography is capturing the moon. However, my lens is not enough to take a good shot of it. One day, I will have a good photo collection of moon. LOL

    1. I used a mid range camera form Canon; not top of the line at all. It was a clear night and full moon so I got some good traction. Hope to see your moon photos some day. :-)
