In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Take Me to the Moon.”
The moon affects all of the fluids on planet earth. The ebb and flow of the oceans, female menstrual cycles and even the psyche of humans is inexplicably tied to that silver rock that hangs so unassumingly in the night sky. The moon represents different things for different people:
- For many the moon represents a feminine and peaceful entity.
- For law enforcement the full moon can mean more car accidents and drunk drivers.
- For doctors the full moon brings with it more births and more patients.
- For farmers the full moon is tied to hard winter frosts.
- For dreamers the full moon represents freedom from the constraints of the material world.
I am a dreamer. When I need a break from the material world, a break from the egos of the workplace, a break from the needs of everyone else, a break from the sound of the traffic passing on the street, I envision myself on the moon – far above the earth.
Safe. Alone. Quiet. Content.
I hear Frank Sinatra singing, “…in other words, I love you.” I am happy. I am at peace here – just me and the moon.
Thinking SpiteHot: How far would I go for someone I love? Loving yourself is the the first step in being able to truly love another. I guess, I would go to the moon.
