All the hype about the so-called Supermoon the other night left me disappointed. The moon still looked the same to my untrained eyes. I've seen bigger ones before. However, this afternoon just as I woke up from my siesta, I saw the sky painted in an eerie shade.
My friend Larissa whom I grabbed the photo you see at the bottom described it as crimson. I on my tower facing the Cancabato Bay, describes it as orangey. It was beautiful yet at the same time apocalyptic.
Is this related to the Supermoon? I know science will explain this as the refraction of light on dust particles but I do not remember the last time I saw this tint spread across the sky.

Gazing at the beauty of nature earlier reminded me of a song I used to hear on AM radio when I was a child,
" Daw nasusunog, sidsid han langit
Pati an dagat gindadala-it
Bangin ha unhan, may nagkaingin
Nga madlos huyog hinin hangin."
