Blogging 101 : Get Inspired By the Neighbors

I was just reading Anushka’s post yesterday and told her I was inspired by her work, and guess what?
Today’s assignment is: Write a post that builds on one of the comments you left yesterday. Don’t forget to link to the other blog!

Legend of the Moon

StellarChallenge-LegendoftheMoon

The moon hang low over the horizon. Night falls and there is no stopping from the impending daylight.

Unusually brighter, bigger and bathed in mustard yellow shade, today I observed shadows of dark craters.

Is it true you are hiding the dark side of you?

You are mysterious.

You change into ethereal clothes: cold silver, tinged yellow, burnt orange, pitch black, in your fantasy colour palette.

You pull and push tirelessly the tides of fate.

You spin the interstellar space casting umbra onto us, the darkness of eclipse.

You wax and wane quietly through the ages of men, fueled with legends.

You age with grace yet you stay youthful as millenniums passed.

Mark my wonders as I perceive you to be the one and only.

And I whisper : Do you know the universe’s secrets?


This short writing is inspired by the big, yellow crescent I saw yesterday night & my perception of the moon, and in response to Stellar and Lunar Roundup #5 (June 18) about perspective.

Stellar and Lunar challenge is hosted by Sarah once a week every Thursday on her blog tuckedintoacorner.
