The Moon IS

The Moon is different things to different people.

A satellite of Planet earth, revolving and rotating helplessly from time immemorial. It has a shape, form and size. It has a geology. It has interestingly poke marked surface, making people debate about the origins of them, some say its the bombardment of meteorites, and some say they are indigenous volcanoes.

For some people, its a place to explore. Is there water? when was it formed? Whats its mass, and whats the density. Whats all the moon dust made of? Some people do travel to the moon, walk on its surface, do those gravity defying leaps. and ... some other say, its all a hoax.

The moon waxes and wanes, its a permanent trusted companion of mankind. Always there for you. Some people observe the moon as it traverses the stars and constellations. As the moon moves from house to house  in the expanse of the stars, different things are said to happen to different folks.

The moon appears to influence a lot of things. It creates wild tides in the oceans. The towering waves with their roaring sound, are a sight to behold.

The moon can be very scary for some people. It instills the eerie feeling that most people dread as dark clouds hide the moon, and make it look sinister.

The moon gently illuminates objects of interest, creating a tranquil moment. A moment of peace and love.

It creates drama and romance. It triggers the creative juices of poets and musicians and lovers alike.

Though the moon appears to do all of this and more, and at times may even seem to be smiling, In reality the Moon simply IS.
