A dull cerise shield obscures a gibbous Lunar orb

 

Drifting ash from distant conflagrations

Blankets the nocturnal sky

 

Acrid acidic aromas assault sensitive sinuses

Driving the amateur astronomer back into chilled comfort

And unspoiled atmosphere

 

We appreciate best the sparkling silver glint of winter

In the season of the Blood Moon
