Greetings Garden Dwellers. Welcome back to Out of Standard, where I will set before you a challenge to defy the conventions of a particular theme. I will call upon you to write out of the standard and find new places in the everyday, but caution: there will be a twist is a twist. Let’s move onward to August’s challenge...
BLUE MOON SPECIAL
Last night inhabitants of earth got a glimpse of a “seasonal” Blue Moon the third of four full moons in a season. There hasn’t been a seasonal blue moon in three years. Another fun fact: because of the enormous distance between the earth and the moon, moon phases are a shared global event. Meaning one person in Minnesota will see the exact same moon as another in India.
Hopefully you all paid particular notice to last night’s sky...because here is your prompt
Write a poem about the moon.
Your poem must NOT mention any concepts of night or sky (or night sky). Simply replacing the words with an adjective is considered cheating and will result in a heavy fine.
KEEP IN MIND
Like every challenge, your poem must by newly written for this challenge and not one which you have previously written which conveniently fits the theme.
Go now, my toads, and bring me back something startling, shiny, and new.
