Ever been woken up by the moonlight on your face??


Many times in the past, my morning’s deep slumber have been disrupted by sunlight streaming on my face from my bedroom window. Not an experience I am very fond of! However, last night was different… I woke up due to the moonlight streaming through my window.

At about 2 a.m. I suddenly woke up being distracted by something… opened my eyes to see the beautiful moon staring at my face.

The sight was beautiful… clear sky and (almost) full moon! I have always admired the moon. As children when my brother and I went to our grandparents’ places for summer vacations and slept on the terrace, I remember we would spend hours looking at the moon and gazing at the stars before we finally fell asleep. Alas! Those days are long gone. We moved to bigger cities which means we do not get to see the moon and the stars anymore! The tall buildings hide the view of the sky and even if one can see the sky, the bright lights dim the stars. I have been in the UK for over 2.5 years now and I have been able to see clear skies (when it is not cloudy!!) a few times and have admired the moon and the stars. However, the sight last night was unparalleled. I could not believe that I actually woke up due to the moonlight but when I looked around I realised that there was no other reason that I would wake up at 2 a.m. The moon shone brightly but it was not harsh like the sun… it was calming feeling.

It is an experience to remember to wake by moonlight streaming on your face and be able to stare back at the moon. It brought a smile to my face despite being woken up…something that I hate!

I hope everyone experiences this in a lifetime… and those of you who have experienced it… you know what I mean!
