Our Lady holds the Moon

Last night, the sky was a clear and beautiful blue when the sun was setting , and the moon was rising, almost full.

While standing in my garden, it appeared as if our lady was holding the Rising Moon in her cup. Right now the Moon is Waxing Gibbous, 98% of the Moon is illuminated.. It will be full on Dec. 31st, New Year's Eve!

This reminds me of an Italian rhyme I heard from a lovely Venetian gentleman who studied the waves and rising tides- which I have tried to remember phoenetically.... I'm sure it need correction...

"La luna incinta
La luna ascenda
La luna cresenda
La luna decenda"?

The moon is pregant.
she is rising,
the moon is a cresent
she is decending.??
Anyone know this little rhyme and can help me with it??
I would appreciate it.

  1. I love this photo. As I looked at the moon last night I thought about your photo. When I went to bed last night I was thinking about it. Best to you in the new year..B
