Picture it & write challenge – Moon


I haven’t managed to join in with a Picture it and write challenge as my March writing schedule was packed full. I was delighted to find this image. If you want to join in you can find a link to ermiliablog and the challenge under the contributor button.




As a child

I would lie in bed,

Pull the curtains open

and stare at the bright moon

in the sky.


I used to tell all my

wishes and dreams

to the moon.

It would always listen.


The moon changed,

over time it

grew fuller.

Hanging peacefully in

velvet darkness

every night.


Absorbing more and

more of my


it grew,

bigger and bigger.



I found myself

able to sleep.
