The moon hangs over
Houses, trees, grass –
I am home
But feel far away
A couple of shots of the moon from my back veranda.
I took the first photo yesterday evening as the moon rose and the sun set; I loved the colours and the way the birds were beginning to nest. I was lucky to catch a couple of them in flight.
The second photo I took this evening. It’s fairly heavily cropped as I don’t have a long enough lens to do this kind of thing properly (hopefully one day!) but still came out reasonably well I think.
After being here for eight months, this place is starting to feel more like home now. I’m starting to get to know my way around Newcastle and once you get used to the noise, it’s not too bad.
Some days I still really miss Sydney though, particularly my friends – one of my best friends just got engaged and I’m sad I’m not there to share it with her -, and I guess that’s what the haiqua was about… how sometimes even when you feel at home, your heart can still be far away.
