And The Moon Beamed
©2014 Louise Gallagher
Patience dear ones, the moon whispered to the stars. It will come to pass. The sun will slip into dusk and your time to shine will come, but first, you must learn to shine in the light of day believing in your own magnificence. one night, the whole world will see the brilliance of your light. But for now, you must practice patience.
And the sun shone, and the moon beamed and the stars twinkled knowing their night would come.
And then, it came to pass that the sun fell into night’s seductive embrace and the stars came out and played Twinkle, Twinkle upon the velvety blanket of night delighting in the lightness of being all that they were born to be in the light of day.
And they shone. Bright.
And the world turned and the sun slept and the moon beamed down upon the earth wrapped in eternity’s embrace.
See my dear ones, whispered the moon to the glittering stars. There is no need to be anything other than what you are born to be. Brilliantly bright and magnificent.
Shine dear ones. Shine.
As you can see, I wrote this brief story in response to the image I created at a workshop in 2014.
It is a reminder to me to remember, no matter how grim the world-tidings appear, there is always magic and wonder, awe and grace in our world.
