A Moon Tale

                                  A Moon Tale
                                   by Shirley Rebstock

    As the moon rose high in the sky, a beautiful moonbow* splashed moonbeams through the new growth of moonflowers.  Sitting at the edge of the pond, the moonfaced mooncalf* stared into the rippling water as the moonfish darted quickly here and there.  The moonraker* was supposed to be moonlighting, selling moonstones, but he appeared moonstruck.  Most likely, he sipped too much moonshine.

*mooncalf - a foolish person
*moonraker - a simpleton
*moonbow - rainbow formed by moonlight

Bibliography: all moon words attributed to page 866 of THE RANDOM HOUSE COLLEGE DICTIONARY Revised Edition 1983

Lol ... this was an interesting piece, Shirley. I was almost getting tired off all the "mooniness" until I read your moonshine bit and had a good chuckle. Surprised no one was "mooning" anyone, though!

That would have been a good one to add (mooning). Only did this because one day opened dictionary and saw all these moon words had never noticed before, so used all the moon words on the page.
