Moon Rising

Tonight after dinner I walked outside and noticed the moon.
It floored me. I have never seen such a sight...the moon rising over the Atlantic Ocean. So expansive and devoid of the colors I've grown accustom to.
The moonlight reflecting on the wet rocks 200 feet below.
Distractions...
Distractions that the moonlight transformed into subjects...
While snapping and standing in awe at the sight and sounds around me, I looked up and saw the most colorful and brilliant shooting star. 
The ocean was quiet today...not silent, just quiet and soothing. 
Standing on the edge of the island in the stillness of night with the sounds of tree frogs, ocean waves and birds... I felt small and incredibly grateful.
