Look up! Look up! Today is the Full Snow Moon.
In Colonial America it it was called the Trappers Moon
Chinese call it Budding Moon
Cherokee call it Bony Moon
Choctaw call it Little Famine Moon
Lakota call it Hunger Moon
The Celtic name is the Moon of Ice
In New Guinea it is the Parrotfish Moon
All around the world, there are faces looking up into the pale blue light, in wonderment.
This morning the snow moon was a naughty tease. Finally the clouds slipped away for a few moments and she (or is it a he?) came out fully, bright and hopeful. The clouds directly below formed a shape that made it appear as if she was being flown across the sky on the back of a bald eagle.
