Kua mate te Marama

A full moon rose over the forest edge
While rose prunings* and brash flared red

As the flames subsided

So too the moon

More brash lit cherry blossom

As the moon shrank

And shrank

until eclipsed it hung
while we drank our fill
Sooty mould on a blood orange
A full blood moon

blood moon

Aue! Kua mate te Marama.

Photos taken with a Sony handycam, good zoom but the jpeg images are somewhat less here than on the camera display.  I gotta get a decent digital camera.

*It’s traditional to burn prunings that might harbour disease,  we prefer to do this as an occasion rather than a chore.
