skinny dipping
a full moon
ripples in the lake

I imagine that the reflection of the moon makes the author naked, removing all his clothes and perhaps even his material body. So now he is purely spiritual to become one with the moon's spirit, as this pictograph shows.

The moon changes its shape from nothing to half, to full and again to half ..., and the symbol is a compound of easily recognizable and simple moon shapes. The wide L shape base in the lake-symbol means place, and is used for making a variety of symbols relating to a place in nature or the human world.
