Moon – Haibun

Lately, there has been nothing to the days but gray. It looks like a brewing storm. But it would turn out to be a calm slate of gray that just lingers. This look is carried through to the nights.

My crystal ball can’t say how clear the night sky will be in the mountains. But I am really looking forward to getting out of the city just the same.

The plan is to leave at eight in the morning, so naturally we left at eleven. This is always the case. Especially when this is not going to be a day trip.

Pedestrians are walking over the Tappan Zee bridge walkway. This is a new addition. What an amazing view that must be. That, is going on my to do list.

Ongoing road works along the route is finally over. This makes for a more pleasant ride. Along the way, we pull over every now and then for photos of turning leaves.

In the mountains I look forward to gazing at a night sky that offers some rewards.

Grape Vine Beetle -Wordless Wednesday

In my garden, yep! He’s having a good old time in my very aggressive grape vines. In flight, I thought it was a super wasp and reached for my insect spray. Then there was the perch. That thing was about an inch long! And kinda cute!
