Blue Moon

We are about to have a blue moon. What does that mean? In the old song about the moon which saw me standing alone, it means a new love. We like to reduce the possibilities of change to romance. But romance is one of the most ordinary of happenings in life. We fall in love a lot. We stay in love — how long? through how many blue moons. As well as a blue moon I have a husband about to have another birthday. Every blue moon we look at
as a tree ring on our love , expanding ever outward inspite of the fact that we thought it should not last at all, through anything as out of place as a blue moon. Moons turn colors and take on aspects — full moon, harvest moon, wolf moon, worm moon, super moon. The soft shading of a blue moon is perfect for my husband’s birthday where he too takes on a special aspect of changing his year and adding to my joy that we are together one more season, one more round, inspite of our cynicism and fear of transition.

About christineemmert

Words have been part of my life. First the spoken word in my time as an actress and increasingly the written word in my shift to writer. I write across the genres, but mostly as a playwright and poet. My interest as my life extends is in the realm of tethering myth to the mundane reality where I live. In this vein I have expanded into stories and novels. Presently I look at how myths taken from past cultures can affect us today. Hence my novella of Lilith which is out on Kindle . I live in the Eastern Woodlands where I try to incorporate nature into my many writing projects. We are so in danger of losing that link to our very planet!
