Who’s blog is this?

Who am I: I am an Educator cum Real-Estate Agent by day. Socially active.

Where: Living in Mauritius,one of the World’s Paradise.

Why blogging? I got the Stargazing Fever during the summer holidays of 2012 and I know it’s not gonna leave me. I have still a lot to move up in the Amateur Astronomy field, so this blog is my contribution to it …. somehow.

Only Stargazing in Life? No, I read a lot, surf a lot, cycle at times, like trekking,  learning swimming, and philosophize at times.

  1. You live in a beautiful place that lends itself to you love of watching the night sky. I often write about that same sky. Here is a work you might enjoy, sort of my thanks for giving me a really enjoyable read this morn.

    Venus and the Crescent Moon

    A cool waxen peel of light,
    kissed gently upon the sky,
    A greenish nymph calls from night,
    and waits for the moon’s reply,

    Earthshine gives her ghostly glow,
    to the crescent moon’s remains;
    night permits the sprite to show,
    a bright dot of cottoned grain.

    Play the night the bodies do,
    each chasing the Milky Way,
    joy and hope they do imbue,
    armor for our coming day.

    Venus goes fast through the night,
    while asking the moon to stay;
    She knows their place in our sight,
    and winks as she fades away.

    Things in the sky have a life,
    and great guidance to bestow,
    a flash reprieve from our strife,
    ’tis a better path they show.

    Watch the night on special eves,
    and see this for yourself,
    beyond the boughs full of leaves,
    moon slice awaits impish elf.
