old ghosts / and new / each looking for / their pound of flesh / —harvest moon
The harvest moon is the full moon that falls closest to the autumn equinox. In the northern hemisphere, that was last night’s moon. For the last eight years the harvest moon has occurred in September, but this year it is October, drawing us deeper into the darker days, and longer nights, of autumn.

Interesting, just knowing that there is a “harvest moon!” Thanks for sharing this!!
I’m glad you enjoyed it, Jerry. Each month’s full moon has a specific name, in several different traditions, and the harvest moon is probably the most widely known. It’s one of the best!
Wow! Thanks for the enlightenment, Norman!
Cool….I also watched her
Thanks, Vida! I reckon many of us did – she was very pretty!
Beautiful post. Was in bed too early to catch the moon last night. Maybe this evening!
I’ve no idea what time the moon rises out there, but it’s still big enough to enjoy! Thank you 😀
This is so nice. I’m so touch by this.
Thank you very much, Ian 🙂
What are you going to do with a pound of flesh? Making hamburger, LOL? Seriously though, that is a great snap of the moon!
You need to ask the ghosts that question, Icy 🙂 Thanks!
Thank you 🙂
Beautiful work, the moon was amazing last night indeed!
It was, Ellie! I’m glad you were looking at it too 🙂
O’o… Apparently, your vibrations that last night pushed me out to watch the full moon overhead.
I wonder how it looked from so near the equator? But I am happy to think of you looking at the same moon as me, my friend!
Of course, I thought the same, my friend.
Yes! I watched it for awhile last night. Love full moons especially this one!
I found this one quite spell-binding. It looks so enormous while hanging low over the horizon!
