March Speculative Fiction Prompt: Moon Child

A mysterious and wonderful poem from Pensivity. Enjoy.


Diana Wallace Peach has given us this image from Pixabay to work with this month.

For visually challenged writers, this is a silhouette of a young person walking in a street in a darkened and empty city. Overhead is a huge moon eclipsing the sun.

I am a child of the Moon,
Tonight is my time.
I walk in the half light
Taking in my surroundings,
Seeing beyond the dark,
Feeling what lies on the air.
I am alone in my quest,
I hear the lingering silence,
Listening for what was.
It is too late for them,
They did not heed the warnings,
But perhaps
I am not too late for the others.
I am a child of the Moon.
I walk in the half light,
I can give them Time.

    • Excellent story, Christina. The end was gripping with the running sand. Your comments are closed. Not a problem, but I didn’t know if you knew that. Thanks so much for playing with the prompt. I’ll line it up for a reblog. 🙂

    • Awesome, Debby. I would love to share your poems or stories. 🙂

      Hey, can I ask you a question? Are you getting all my comments on your website. They haven’t shown up (for months). I sent you an email through your contact form about three months ago and never heard back. I figure you hate me or there’s something wrong. Lol. Just wanted to let you know. I do leave a comment on all your posts. ❤

        Lollllllll Diana, I must hate you. But seriously, holy crap. what the hay? I have seen you ‘like’ my posts, but no comments. I figured you were busy lol. Seriously, I will investigate because since the new year I”m getting like 150 spams on my website comments, it’s ridiculous, I can’t scroll through them all daily so I read the first few and hit delete. I’ll be you’ve been in there. I’m sorry. I will have to start scrolling til I find you in there. I’m sorry I have no contact mail from you either. Looks like Worstpress is at it again. Now I’m on a mission. 🙂 ❤

    What an excellent poem, Diana! The “tone” throughout this penned beauty runs like a deep stream, mysterious and alive. I’ve missed so much here on account of what is going on in my life, yet every time I do come here, I am amazed by your blog and all that you do. Thank you for all you do and bringing here such talented and gifted writers. Glorious!! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
