Moon following Sun

Moon following sun

The Moon always follows the Sun so the Sun cannot hide from us, any more than my children could hide from me when they were small because our Border Collie followed them everywhere.  I see her tail in my memory, like a crescent moon. The Potomac River’s open water reflects the salmon sunset while the ice reflects the blue sky.
