I think about you
Only once in a blue moon.
But the moon is never blue
Or is it forever blue?
Melting moon changes phases
This fickle trickster teases.
My love in not like a blue moon
For it’s forever true, forever blue.
Today is a Blue Moon day (31st July, 2015). The one that is in the common saying “Once in a blue moon”.
The moon that actually looks blue is a very rare sight. The full moon appears blue only when the atmosphere is filled with dust or smoke particles of a certain size; say after a storm or a volcanic eruption.
Which means, in reality, there is nothing like blue moon. The moon is never blue. It only appears to be so because of smoke and all.
Which also means if this concept of ‘blue moon’ is more of our imagination, then it is up to us to assume moon is always blue. True love is like that.
The blue picture was borrowed from a free picture site, hence my poem is more appropriate for Jennifer’s color your world challenge – Midnight blue
