Oh for a camera

I saw the most wonderful sight this morning on the way to work. It was 5:40am , when from behind the trees along the freeway the moon appeared and literally took my breath away. It was on its way down, sitting so low in the sky, full and huge, seeming bigger than I’ve ever seen it before. It was really creamy this morning, not white, and I could clearly see all its craters and undulations shadowed over the surface. I couldn’t stop and after that flash it was behind the trees and when I’d finally reached another break it was gone altogether. If only I’d had a camera. I wished I could have chased it wherever it was going.
