Moonlit Path

I went out at about 7:30 tonight before the

eclipse and took a few long exposure shots of

my moonlit snowshoe trail in the woods.

MOONLIT PATH

Try too reach and touch the stars.
Imagine them sifting through your fingers
As in a deep, silent pool.
The full moon above
Shines down coldly upon us
And colors the earth in shades
Of blue, black and gray.

A slight breeze stirs the air,
Carrying sounds from far away.
A dog barks in the distance,
A train rolls through town
On a late night run to somewhere.

Light, wispy clouds pass by from the north,
And briefly cover the moon like a veil,
Before they drift away.
The breeze softly rustles
The dry cornstalks left in the field.

This peaceful night;
This beautiful, peaceful night.
All alone, you and I,
In this world of blue and gray,
Walking the snowy, moonlit path,
Gazing up to the heavens,
Hoping to someday touch the stars.

    This is nice! That bottom shot is so moody!
    I went to watch the eclipse, it was beautiful, but my photos were not? No one is seeing them.
