Due to the proliferation of high rise buildings and heat island effect, it can be tough to get good moon shots in Vancouver. Just ask the guy who in 2015 chased the rising moon from block to block as it moved between rows of tall buildings. From our 14th floor perch, I was still only able to catch a couple of shots of the March 9/20 Super Worm Moon (so named because this is the time earthworms and grubs come out of their winter dormancy—-Yay?)
Under the Full Moon
Away up high, where the air is rare
we pause a moment and start to stare.
Faint glow appears over cityscape,
soft moonlight begins this world to drape.
As if on cue, life starts to slow down,
street noises fade, all over downtown.
In gardens below, things start to squirm
‘neath the light of this orb, Super Worm.
Faint shadow below, whistling a tune.
Strange things happen under the full moon.
