So Lazy.

I have had such a “writer’s block” on my brain. Not sure if it is due to the fact that I am so busy, or because I “just don’t care”. The latter would be so detrimental to my ego. I sit down to write, and then I just sit and stare at the screen here!

Today is supposed to be a Super Moon night. I have been waiting for Luna, but she has been avoiding me. The sky is full of clouds and she keeps playing hide and seek.

I know tomorrow morning there will be a hundred pictures on facebook by people who could see the huge moon and the eclipse and stuff. I never seem to have good luck viewing the special moons.

This is what I have folks. If, as the night winds, I see better shots, then xanga will get them, ❀

About Zakiah

I write poetry and some fiction, have a book that was published in 2012. . . Stray Thoughts/Winged Words. I have four grandchildren, ages 16 and half to almost 16 months. I love the ocean, and grew up along the Indian Ocean in South India. I am a retired physician. Don't know much else to say. Thanks for reading. That has been my profile for so many years. My daughter Saadia a great poet and story teller, has two sons; the oldest grandson is now 21 years old, doing architectural engineering at Missouri S&T in Rolla MO. His younger brother is almost 16 and taking driving lessons seriously and is in High School. The other two grandsons, children of my son Sayeed, are 9 and 5. I have recently published another book titled Gulistan, A home of Flowers. It has stories and memories of my childhood and of a distant land which I still consider as my HOME., even though I have lived here in the US for more than fifty years. Hope to see you on my blog.

    I know, boo hiss. I can’t see it here either and this one at least was at a decent hour. The last one was at 2 a.am. It was looking quite hopeful for a clear sky at 8:00 but shortly after the clouds just began to thicken again and now I can see nothing. 😦

    • Zakiah says:

      exactly! It was a decent hour, and I tried to get out every half hour or so to see if I could see it full. But dang those clouds. I think I waited till about 10 or a little more before I said pfffffttt! and went to bed.

    • Zakiah says:

      I went to your blog and wanted to comment on the photograph of you with your grandmother, mother and children. But I couldn’t find the box where I could click to comment. The picture is beautiful, and I am happy you did get to see the moon. yay!

    We have just enough of a film of clouds that it’s not worth turning on the camera. It’s pretty, but very dim!

    • Zakiah says:

      Hi Janet. So good to see you back. Hope every thing was fine at home when you returned, and the trip was enjoyable.
      Yeah, not seeing the moon was a bummer. I was hoping I would see it. The next one will in in 18 years I hear. By that time I will be a wisp of memory, if that! πŸ˜‰

  3. I haven’t been able to see the moon here. It is too cloudy.

  4. mrswrangler says:

    We have a great view of the moon.

  5. Writer’s block… that’s why I chose ElusiveWords.
    I did see the moon earlier in the evening before the eclipse. After I got home, I went for a walk to a clear spot, waited for about 45 minutes but the moon never showed up.

    • Zakiah says:

      I have never seen any of the special moons that have been the rage these past couple of years Matt. Not because I haven’t tried though. I think the lunar light shuns me or something. By the time this kind of phenomenon occurs, I will be 6 feet under!

  6. sunsetdragon says:

    Have a good week and it was way to cloudy here of runs to see anything.

  7. kaylar says:

    Thank you for saying, re the temporary ‘block’, Dr. Z. Peace to thee…

    • Zakiah says:

      Salam to you also Kim. I am hoping that this is a temporary block…. because when I am in bed and unable to sleep I have so many thoughts and ideas for the Friday Fiction and for my blogs. Unfortunately I never have a journal by my bedside. 😦

      • kaylar says:

        Yes, get a journal or at least paper, at bedside. A friend of mine, long ago, gave me a pen that lit up, for dream journal-ing. We need to get you one of those. (-:

  8. whyzat says:

    I thought about going out to look, but I decided I wouldn’t be able t see it through all the trees. Besides, it was past my bedtime!

    • Zakiah says:

      I think you probably would have wasted your time if you had sat up like me Dian. We have had so many of these super duper moons this past year, and do you know, I have not seen a single one of them. The Midwest is always cloudy when those moons decide to appear.

  9. Lyne's View says:

    We do “get it” even if we didn’t see it. pats heart, and points to you)

  10. Cool photos!
    We had a clear night, so I sat outside and watched the moon…it had center stage! πŸ™‚
    I think everyone gets writer’s block…so just hang in there and soon you will have poems and stories and life stuff to post! πŸ™‚
    My problem is I write too much (all of it sits in my word-program on my computer)…but, life is so busy I only have time to post on my blog once a week or less. 😦
    ❀ and HUGS!!! πŸ™‚

    • Zakiah says:

      So glad you were able to see the moon in all its glory Carolyn. ❀
      I am a hoping that this block will dissipate like dust on the horizon. I used to write all the time. These past few months, it is just not the same. πŸ˜‰ 😦
      Love and hugs to you.

    In northeast Ohio, it seems like we ALWAYS get horrible cloud cover whenever there’s supposed to be an interesting event in the night sky. Meteor showers, the moon, the planets… we never get to see anything here 😦

    I’ve been loving all of the moon photos on Facebook today.

    • Zakiah says:

      I think that’s the problem with Midwest too. Every single time there is a super moon, at least the cloud coverage over Quincy IL is so dense. Other months, other full moons, I can see them clearly, and in fact I have some very good shots of them. But the blood moon and the super moon and the Blue moon have all used their facial hijabs for me! 😦

  12. It was so cloudy here, we couldn’t even see the moon at all.

  13. I’m like you Zakiah I did not see the red moon, queen of the night. I hope she will forgive me. My brain got an eclipse that night. However It would have been magical to see this. But it is so..
    Love ❀
    Michel

  14. Zakiah says:

    Dear Michel,
    Usually my brain is the one under the pall of a thick eclipse. But this time, I was awake and ready with my camera. Well, may be there will be another kind of moonlight to grace our lives before the year ends. Who knows! It certainly would have been magical if I could have witnessed it.
    much love, ❀
    Zakiah.

    Some times we just don’t get a clear picture, of the sky or of what we want to write.

    • Zakiah says:

      Hi Chris, what a pleasure to see you here.
      In my case Chris, I have seen some beautiful full moons, but all this entire year, I have not been able to see a single Blue, Super, or Blood moon. Every single time, there have been clouds in the sky. I think the Midwest is notorious for the pall of clouds.
      Hope you are doing well. Love and hugs.

      • christao408 says:

        Cloudy skies conspire against your moon-gazing?

        Thanks, it is nice to be back. I am trying to build in some time for blogging again and hope with the new job, that I may find even more time.
