Moon Child

I step outside with a heavy heart, worried about another possible war. So lost in my thoughts it takes me a couple of minutes to notice the extraordinary light illuminating the garden. Then I remember, tonight's the night when the Moon would be at it's fullest. 

I look up and there she was, the grand dame, the royal queen of the sky. It's beauty takes my breath away. Something warm and wonderful wraps itself around my shoulders. I can feel the magic and I cry.  

Oblivious to the troubles of the world and just for a little while, the Moon and I become one...


  1. When I look at the moon I wonder at the fact that Shakespear looked up at that very same moon and saw what I see. If it could talk to us, what a brilliant history teacher it would be because it saw what really happened and not stories that have been warped by time. xx

  2. Just beautiful Alina...wasn't the moon incredible last night? Just magical x

  3. How powerfully beautiful Alina...thankyou for this soul touching post...your words capture my heart! Beautiful

  4. Dearest Alina, what an exceptional and beautifully written post ... indeed, the opulentness and extraordinary pull of the moon certainly has a way of capturing our attention. I share your concerns in regards to your first sentence.

    When you have a moment, stop by to say hello, I have a springtime wish awaiting for you. Perhaps the words will lighten your heart for a moment or two ... Much love, P.

  5. Yes, I have been dwelling on this same worry. Lets just pray for peace xx

  6. no good sweating about stuff, life goes on regardless.... the moon was certainly amazing here last night. just think positive thoughts, thats all we can do. hugs xxx

  7. All round the world, all through the years, all seeing the same light. Beautiful.

  8. it was beautiful, wasn't it? I love "royal queen of the sky"
