The Night the Moon Fell

She saw it fall…
That lunar disc just dropped out of the
inky blue sky,
shattering in a field.
Running towards it
her heart almost stopped beating.
Crying in the still, white frost,
with trembling hands
she tried to piece it together...
But it was fractured
beyond repair.

What a visual fo words and images. You can actually feel yourself grieving for the shattered moon and then feel the compassion while trying to put it together. Brilliant!


Fondly, Sergio

I like the voice in this.  It lets the reader in and relate to a personal experience.

Well, she's got a job ahead of her, but if it can be done, she's the one who'll do it. ML

Absolutely chilling to me, little Healer....It is a gracious look at the world of the Lightworker....Indeed, a beautiful work, one that I shall keep...
In Light and Love...Margaret.....

The Moon's position sheds light on the interior life
of a person. And now she is left in darkness for the light is fractured beyond repair.   You so beautifully expressed her loss. with a touching  and delicate moment of grief.   Namaste,  Loretta
