Dear Readers

Fear not the Darkness, But What Lies Within, The recesses of our mind, The creepy cobwebbed corners,That lingers on and tickles us,With tingle feelings of alarm, The deep in the stomach, Pain we feel when we do warn, The fear is deadly it seeks, The deepest corner of our mind, It's just a story to alarm,Educate and provide entertainment for our minds. So read on dear reader, I hope you find the stories amusing and full of charm.

Rose Moon, Strawberry Moon

The Strawberry Moon occurs in the northern hemisphere on Monday the 20th of June 2016. The sun will rise at 4:45 a.m. and sunset will be at 10:34 p.m. but the moon turns on  
June 20 at 7:02 a.m. Eastern Standard Time,  It's the longest day of the year and Summer Solstice. Both of these will not coincide again until June 21, 2062 so enjoy tonight.

Rose Moon, Strawberry Moon 
Strawberry moon
A deceptive name
For it's amber
In its colour
Hot Moon, Honey Moon 
Long Night Moon
A Rose Moon by any other name
For Summer Solstice
Seventeen hours of sunlight
Followed by bright lit sky
The sun super high
The moon super low
Coexisting in one sky
Fragments of light
Across the spectrum
Creating amber glow
Filling the sky
With warmth
Bringing a feeling
Of peace and love
Look up, enjoy
For the Strawberry Moon
Will not be again nigh
Coinciding with Summer Solstice
Until June 21, 2062
So seek out its warm and guiding light
Let go of all the inner fight
Hold on to the peacefulness 
Of the night

Embrace the energy 
Dance and rejoice 
Eat and be merry
In the waning hours
Of the moon
