Talk To The Moon

It was a fine cloudless night and the universe speckled in incandescent glory. The moon was full and it was one of those occasions when it seemed to be hanging just a little bit nearer the earth, so I thought I'd ask it a question.

"Why do you never turn around so we can see your other side?"

It did not reply at first, I guess due to the time it takes conversations to go places, but then a voice sounded sadly in my head:

"Because beautiful as Earth is, it used to be more so - bluer, greener, sparkling full of splendid varieties of life now extinct - so I prefer to look at the stars."
