under the influence of moonlight

…..this week the words came from Lisa Anne in the Peppermint Creek Collective’s Scavenger Hunt Game….

…..here’s Lisa Anne’s lovely words: possibilities, moonflower, dappled, luck, erosion, weave, imagery, poetry, swoon, urban, muse, gypsy, veil, nomadic, parallel………..

………….and here’s the “story snippet” that I wrote using her words….

“under the influence of moonlight”

there was something about
the soft moonlight
in the garden
she couldn’t help but swoon


the possibilities were endless
as the veil between
the parallel worlds
of what was real
and what was imaginary
eroded away


as the push and hustle of her
urban life became a
in the silence
of the dappled silvery light


and when the nomadic moon
in her fullness
had reached
the very peak
of the heavens above


with a bit of luck

she felt her gypsy muse
dancing about the garden
weaving imagery
and enchantment
into poetry
as she set each moonflower
aglow with magic…..
