    __Your well posed verse Martin, it caused this, my humble reverberation. _m

    heavy seas
    as this full moon pulls the tide
    thunder sounds

    groundswell — or as the poet has it here: "ground swell"– an interesting word or phrase

    in both definitions–either in popular support or a wave in the ocean

    the common denominator is the unexpected

    which is how the day moon often feels to me when I glimpse its presence

    always there–it seems–tone on tone, half-hidden

    that it "draws closer" adds a surprise element to the unexpectedness

    of course, makes me think of the political atmosphere of these times . . .

    Took me back to my childhood and those first questions about the sky …

    daytime moon – my first question why

    There is a magic in the day moon, and you've captured that so beautifully.
