BLUE AND GREEN PLANET SEEKS single white moon with blue shadows and a dark side. Content to be overshadowed daily. Willing to always be present but often unseen, to be out- shone and to reflect the shining light of the other—bigger, better, hotter, brighter. Has no problem being eclipsed, sometimes totally and is not afraid of the dark. Must be happy to wax. And wane. May be full monthly and rarely be blue. Must be content to cast a softer, gentler light. Willing to be paid in rituals, songs, sonnets and the whispers of young lovers.
