I couldn't see the fireworks from my house, but I could see this.


 

Independence Day, 4th of July  
A warm summer’s eve      
Brilliant colors fill the ebony sky
Red, blue, yellow and green
Ooh and aahs from all the crowd
Joyful feelings from all around

But in back of the man-made colors,
Something else glows,  so special but
a secret the crowd will never know. 
A rare harvest moon so large and round
No one paid attention, it was never found

Soon the fireworks were over, time to go home
Man’s show was brilliant, but God’s rare gift
Much brighter shown, no one saw it,
it was there all alone.

WELL - well...History repeats its self (sorta)
Nice Poem I will say - - - :-)

But my point is that there was a blood moon on the 3rd of this year.
(yesterday) --- I was sleeping - But it was told to me today
Keep writing - - And Keep Looking UP!!

WHEN WE CATCH THE GIFT OF SEEING A FULL MOON ON A BEAUTIFUL NIGHT...IT SEEMS LIKE IT JUST FOR US. IT FILLS THE HEART AND SOUL WITH HOPE AND LETS YOU KNOW, WITHOUT A DOUBT...THERE IS A GOD!!!
GREAT WORK AND THANKS FOR SHARING. LOVE, BLESSINGS AND FAITH...

Mary, no more breath taking sites in the night sky than the magnificence of a harvest moon. Fire works! A minuscule event
compared to nature's encore events. I wish you peace and love my friend. Jon Michael

Beautiful observation ... was watching this moon over the past few days .... it was nature's gift to us this 4th of July. Thanks for pointing it out, Mary.

Very perceptive. There have been quite a few astronomical wonders lately. I haven't caught any, but, thanks to the Internet I can find them and rerun the videos to my hearts content

I saw it before the start of the finale; two shows in one! It was beautiful!

Sometimes we do fail to truly see the important things. Thank you, Mary. Love and best wishes,

That is all too often true, some of God's greatest gifts of nature are upstaged by man made gimics or tricks.
