  3. Cool perspective, thinking of men standing on the moon gazing at the earth instead of the other way around. Moons have been on my mind of late, too.

  9. You know you never really think of what it was like for the man on the moon - it's always good to look at things in a different way - magical moon dust of a poem Sumana!

  10. I was fascinated by recent images of the moon picture from behind against the Earth. We will never lose our interest in our closest heavenly body.

  13. Such a historic event. What a wonderful haiku-esque tribute, Sumana.

    Funny though, every time the landing on the moon is discussed in school, our teacher always raised a trivia about Ms Universe. It was the first time the Philippines was crowned Ms U and the question was about landing on the moon lol
