Cold Hearted Orb that rules the night

Here is the other surfer painting that sold this week. 

This morning Jac and I were out before it became light as we were going off early to pick up Alex's mom from the airport. Anyway the moon was out and you could see Saturn, Mars and Venus. I am quite happy walking around in the dark and don't need a torch. I spent many nights walking and only came to grief on one occasion when I climbed over the gates of a supermarket and landed in dishes of catfood that had been left out for the stray cats. Oh yes I went over to arrest someone breaking in and I did but of course the smart alec did give me a hard time because I was covered in catfood.

I digress the moon was beautiful and gave soft shadows to the trees on the woodland path.

I am not a great one for poetry but there are a few that touch a part of my heart. This is a good excuse to post one of them.

Breathe deep the gathering gloom,
Watch lights fade from every room.
Bedsitter people look back and lament,
Another day's useless energy spent.
Impassioned lovers wrestle as one,
Lonely man cries for love and has none.
New mother picks up and suckles her son,
Senior citizens wish they were young.*
Cold hearted orb that rules the night,
Removes the colours from our sight.
Red is grey and yellow white.
But we decide which is right.
And which is an illusion?

*(No I don't,once around the block is enough)
 words by Graeme Edge
