Beauty, Masaoka Shiki, Moon, Nature, Shasei, stars, writing technique
On Monday night, there was a full moon. Made more glowing was the fact that we were in darkness as we had no power. Our house was bathed in an utter glitter. My third boy said ‘mummy the moon is beautiful.’ He loves animals and now am I surprised he appreciates nature? 🙂 I could only nod, stunned at the spectacle.
The next day, I woke up at 4.30 am to get us all ready for school and work. And then I saw the reflection in my window. When I looked out and up, I saw them; two lone stars, one bigger, and yes twinkling, in place of the full moon. I’ve remained speechless until now. 🙂

And this for Carpe Diem prompt, Shasei (saying it as it is)
at break of dawn
