The April Full Moon is April 16

This moon of full power
is named after a flower
herbal moss pink
that cascades over rocks,
 also known as mountain phlox
It has other names that might make you think.

Inspired by the Springtime
various tribes
used regional names
that would help to describe
events of this season
like Grass-Sprouting Moon
Or Egg Moon for some bird-brained reason.
Near the coast it was called after Fish,
will they soon appear in a dish?

  1. Some lovely pictures to accompany a lovely poem Pat.

    Where I live, clouds permitting, we can experience some wonderful
    moonscapes shimmering across the sea, but I think my wife sometimes just sees an April full (!)
