My love of Bella Luna began as a small child. Awoken by her brilliant light.. I would tiptoe to the window, draw back the curtain and gaze upon her face. This was my quiet time.. my time to dream and travel on imaginary journeys.. My time to wish upon the moon.
I'd wonder where she had been this night, what places had she seen & if I sent her my wishes, would she take me on her travels, off into the night sky, across the the aquas and blues of the endless oceans, to arrive in lands where rooftops held mystery and chimney pots magic. In my dream world, streets were paved with glistening seas and floating carriages to transport me on my journey.. Buildings were adorned with jewelled tiaras and soft swirling gowns dipping their hems in the water's edge. I'd wonder if such places could exist. Were they only products of my luna vigil? Perhaps one day I would travel. With my moon to guide me, would I meet others too, who looked upon her beauty and dreamt of wonderous lands?
As I left childhood behind Bella Luna did not forget me. She kept my wishes in her pocket and carried them with her throughout the years and across the dark night skies. Each full moon, she would visit my dreams and sprinkle some of those childhood hopes into my nightly slumber. Just a little each time.. just enough to spark a memory of that child, looking out the window, dreaming of worlds to discover.
As fairy Tales Go..
I did travel out into the world to find ...
To The Moon Alice
This month begins my third year of posting 'To The Moon Alice' so I thought I'd provide a linky tool and would love for you to join in and share the moon from your corner of the world. If photography's not your thing, maybe there is something else you wish to share; art, poems, facts.. fables.. [if not your own work please credit the original artist].. That's it.. I think!! Let's just give it a go and see if there is any interest.
But most importantly, get out there and see the full moon and
Make A Wish
PS: Giveway WILL be coming soon [promise!!]
& THANKS for the lovely comments on my last post
As you can see I'm still mad about the stripes!!
