View of the Cathedral, Zacatecas, México

the jade-seller’s lamp
still burning long past midnight
blotting out the moon

Always somewhere a lamp is burning.

  1. Better than cursing the dark, eh?

  2. Always! There must be somewhere there’s no light pollution. x

  3. Cool!! Now if the skies can clear up tonight so I can see the supermoon!

      Clear skies here in the desert make for sizzling hot weather, but also for “cool” super-moon viewing! Maybe I’ll get some decent shots tonight.
