The Moon

How often does the bright moon come?
With Wine, I ask of the blue sky.
In the heavily palaces,
I wish to return there, riding the wind,
but fear that in the high places of jade halls and eaves,
I cannot fend off the cold.

Rising to dance with my clear shadow,
scarcely possible that I among men,
turn around the red lacquered pavilions,
dip below the silken-curtained windows,
shine on the sleepless.

There ought not be regrets,
but why so often are you full at times of parting?
Men have sorrow and joy and farewell and union.
The moon has clouds and clear skies,
waxing and waning.

Perfection is rare since days of old,
so wish only that the years be long,
to share beauty even across a thousand miles.


- Su Shih (lived in the Song Dynasty (1037-1101) )

bright Moon

The sun is shining in the sky
and Moon gives a sigh

For she can’t light up the day
because the sun is in the way

But at night Moon shines bright
and the sun is out of sight

He is sleeping in his bed
and isn’t angry to be said

That Moon is shining bright
in the sleepy starry night

thinking of Moon

I looked up at the night sky
and saw stars begin to appear
But way up on high
and also quite near
I saw no moon
and I stood there and thought
that I really ought
to continue my journey, to the Moon.

Hmmmmm, I'm planning a little trip at the weekend ..... ;)

The weekend came
The weekend went
I looked at my finances
and decided on a tent

I knew from before
That English pounds don't go far
Where even an egg
Can cost an arm and a leg

Still I am planning in quietness
You just have to sit there and guess
I may well come by foot
to get some of that rømmegrøt

So watch out Moon
I could be there soon ;)

Actually, Ariz looks quite accountable to me and yet again has been a perfect hostess and a guide to her wonderful islands. I have much to reflect on in my further Journey to the Moon, now continuing in part 3 :)
