I caught the Moon playing with a UFO …


I caught the Moon playing hide and seek behind the swaying tree branches and above the infrared light …

like a Gold Brooch on a black fur lapel ...

The Moon had the leading role and the dark swaying branches above the infrared light created the mood … What a nice shot it would make,I thought to myself, and right away I grabbed the camera to imprison the scene … OM ! Look what I accidentally caught … It absolutely bewildered my senses and took me aback … Was it a flying saucer,a UFO above my garden ??? For a couple of minutes it was an intriguing unsolved mystery … Please come to my shoes for a sec because when I took the photo it didn’t show on my camera screen …

OM ! What is this flying scaucer doing here ...

OM ! What is this flying saucer doing here … ???

it was not on the camera screen when I was trying to capture the Moon ...

it was not on the camera screen when I captured the Moon …

It took me some time until I understood that it was a familiar flying saucer,a safe flying saucer that I see every night above my head in my study … I was soon comforted and started smiling and thinking that it would make a great share to make my friends laugh.Simply,I was in my study when I took the photo through a glass window and the UFO was the reflection of a ceiling light on the glass,looking exactly like a funny flying saucer … Life is fun.Isn’t it !!! And the Moon is beautiful in all its Phases and Faces !!!

it was so beautiful and frolicsome that night ...

To the Moon ( excerpt from the Orphic Hymn ) pre-classical poetry :

Goddess queen, diffusing silver light,with stars surrounded
Female and Male with borrow’d rays you shine,
Whose amber orb makes Night’s reflected noon
In peace rejoicing, and a prudent life:
Fair lamp of Night, its ornament and friend,
Who giv’st to Nature’s works their destin’d end.
Queen of the stars, all-wife Diana hail!
Deck’d with a graceful robe and shining veil;
Come, blessed Goddess, prudent, starry, bright,
Come moony-lamp with chaste and splendid light,
Shine on these sacred rites with prosp’rous rays,
And pleas’d accept thy suppliant’s mystic praise.

To Selene  a “pre-Olympian” Goddess :

Oh, Lady Moon

Mother of the Night

Your Beauty astounds the Heavens

Your light exceeds the Stars

Your face glows with the sparkle of Inspiration

You are the Muse …

  1. Oh, what a wonderful post, Doda! I am a cancer – moon child – so, of course, your exquisite pictures and perfect captions surrounded me with peace and wonder. And that is so strangely wonderful the way the light above your head was reflected in those photographs. Blessings! XO
