The Full Harvest Moon at 99.7% illuminated

Photography and Poem by Norma Beaird
As moonrise begins,
a full Harvest Moon takes on a glorious golden glow.
Then, as the moon begins to rise higher in the sky,
the golden glow turns into a beacon of yellowish eggshell,
and then into a hue of ivory brilliance,
and, while basking in the cool night breeze,
as the moon is way up in the starry sky,
it turns into a bright electric white.
I call this God's Night Light in the Sky.
