sound of the moon
Firth of Forth 31.08.17.
Now playing: Christina Vantzou – ‘Moon Drone’ from No. 3
Almost fully formed, a singing light filling the sky. The temptation to climb up a ladder, over the chimneys and walk through the clouds. Like a moth, drawn towards the light.
On nights such as this, we all stop to gaze at the moon.
But the moon returns our gaze. Whispers softly to us:
In the dark, I see
a small blue planet.
Care for her well.*
