And Then There Was Magic

"Frosty Moon & Mistletoe" - photo
Early this morning, before the sun was up, I peeked outside to see moon glow through a thin veil of icy clouds. Without thinking twice, I grabbed my camera, went outside and took the moon's portrait by framing it through the tree branches next to a clump of mistletoe. Then I went back inside and posted it to Facebook, calling it "Frosty Moon & Mistletoe." 

It wasn't long after that that artist/writer, Katrina Small, noticed it and was inspired to write a poem which she then posted on her blog with my photo after first asking my permission.

Across the lea, in shadows still, the sudden cry of Whippoorwill.” © Katrina Small

You can say whatever negative things you will about the social media, but moments like this are nothing less than magic.
