You may be one who knows the history behind “The Ides of March,” and you may even be one who is superstitious about it. I’m fascinated by it, and I enjoy learning new things about the moon and the ancient lunar calendar, but I hold no superstitions. Did you know that we have two full moons in March? You can learn a lot of cool factoids about the moon by watching this video by Dave Brody on Science.com.
My head has been swimming with The Ides of March, the moon phases, and other fabulous events this month, all of which have inspired me to write a prose poem titled “Once In a Half-Baked Moon.” I hope you enjoy it.
