Sympathic Moon --- Tritina


As midnight comes, moon tiptoes in to wait, to soothe her gently with a tender smile. Expectation is haloed on the wall Moon angles his light, around every wall, where mobiles dangle, and butterflies wait, to charm baby's eyes, and wrangle her smiles The clocks keep ticking, and the moon must wait. Someone is kicking inside belly's wall. She cringes in pain, ...but then bravely smiles. Dawn waits to smile, ...until she climbs that wall

    I love the personification of the moon, rather like a first-time grandparent who just can't wait. Well-done best of luck in Craig's challenge.

    Just lovely, Carrie, has a lullaby feel and such beautiful imagery of an expectant mother. Love it.

    This is beautiful, Carrie...An expectant mother...I love that the baby hasn't arrived yet, and you take us to how the mother feels her first contractions. Lovely! The moon adds a magical dimension. Sweet
