Big moon meant big mangåta –
To take me away
From this crazy world

Notes to this poem…
Super moon night and I planned a run to observe the biggest one in about 70 years! It wasn’t super big here in Halifax, but it was beautiful to see lots of people out waiting for it, and it was beautiful as moon rises always are.
Here’s what you need to know about mangåta, the Swedish word for road to the moon, before I go on.
Yes, the mangåta was big, and I was very tempted given the recent American election fiasco and future impact.
The R-series poems were composed while I was out running, in an effort to find time for writing in a life that is always getting busier.
