On top of Round Hill, in a land called Marin,
December’s sun coaxed a new day to begin.
As she climbed, bit by bit, up into the sky,
Sun noticed the Moon, waiting patiently nigh.
“Is something wrong, brother?” she sighed on the breeze.“You haven’t set yet, but why? If you please—”
“A Good Day to you, my sister, my friend,
It’s not often I see you on my downward trend.
Besides this little visit, it warms my heart so
To be the herald for change, all in one go.”
“Ah—the thirteenth full moon, I do recall now,
Transition and opportunity are portents you avow.
Well then, thank you for sharing not only the sky,
But your message for all, to stretch, and aim high!”
By this time, the sun reached her full height—’round about noon,
She called out to her brother, “Good Night Moon!”
I have no idea what might have caused this snapshot of the moon to morph into a heart, but strange things have been known to happen on nights when the moon is full. Even stranger is the effect it has on me during the daytime – that’s when I get the urge to speak in rhyme.
How does the moon affect you?
very cute! Good night Donna. Good night friend.
Submit this as a picture book!!! It is lovely!
Since you used 3 exclamation points, I will. Hugs and a Happy New Year to you!
reminds me of a comb and brush and a bowl full of mush, still remember the words.
They are unforgettable, are’t they? A favorite of mine too!
You’ve outdone yourself!
🙂 My daughter is 21 and still goes sleep walking. On the full moon she was sleep walking wanting to take a picture of a fairy! Who took those beautiful pictures?
Nick took the daytime moon, I took the others on my phone, of all things.
Actually “portend” means omen or warning. Is that how it was meant??
Yup, you’ve got it Petra…a sign, a prophecy, a signal…normally used as a verb.
Reblogged this on Moon Girl.
Hmm it appears like your site ate my first
comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any tips and hints for novice blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate
Thank you Rachele. As for tips? Just keep it real and regular. The kick in the pants for me was Kristen Lamb’s book: Are You There, Blog? It’s Me, Writer – very helpful. Have fun!
Aw, this was an exceptionally nice post.
Taking a few minutes and actual effort to produce a top notch
article… but what can I say… I put things off a whole lot and never manage to get anything done.
