A poem by a friend, with a little bit of added awesome...

Please check out this poem by my friend Nette. She runs her own blog over at, which has words in there brilliantly organized to make you realize that you are, in fact, completely human.

Nette tweeted that she didn't have a picture of a moon for the poem she wanted to post tonight. I happened to have a million of them thanks to being woken up at 6 in the morning by my Dad to go see the full moon setting over the Colorado River. Little did I know this photo full of somewhat melancholic and mysterious wonder would be the fit for Nette's words.

As I read through each line, I found myself drawn into childlike pleas and the incredible magnetism felt during a brightly-lit night.

Please also make sure to read her Note at the bottom of the poem... that will explain so much to you, and you will fall a little more into humanity.

Tonight, indulge in some hot chocolate, warm blankets and pillows - and gift yourself with the words of a poet.
