March 9: Exploration

star stuff

exploring the moon
Image from Bing

the moon holds secrets so divine
scattered star stuff, ground of being
luminous seeds create a shrine
the moon holds secrets so divine
her light reveals Enigma’s love line
explores the vision she is seeing
the moon holds secrets so divine
scattered star stuff, ground of being

    ~My first triolet.

On this day in 1454, explorer Amerigo Vespucci was born.  The continents of North America and South America are named after Vespucci.  Reflect on exploration.

    Congratulations on revealing another secret so divine, exploration not of self but of the moon. Excellent job!

      Perhaps the moon is part of who we are?

    I particularly liked 'scattered star stuff, ground of being'. Here's my interpretation (quite, quite different!) http://mangetoutetc.wordpress.com/2011/03/09/exploration/
