Prosery: Maya Angelou
Challenged to use the seven words
[his shadow shouts on a nightmare scream]
From Maya Angelou's poem Caged Bird in a prose writing of not more than 144words

❧✿❧

The beautiful flower moon arrived early. Birds were still nesting in their hushed roosts. She was round and full, super bright at the cusp of day and night. She had traversed gazillion of stars in her eating frenzy. She was sated now.

Will there be rain to add to the tears of an earth pining under the burden of pandemic charges?

Who knew as she waned, as morning stretched awake, that her slumber behind azure curtains light and gossamer like spider weaves, would lead to a night of quarantined madness, as ominous clouds dared to hide her brillance.

And below, in a sleepy little cottage in the woods, the hermit, as he wakes in a cold sweat, his shadow shouts on a nightmare scream

  10. Happy Mother's Day to you, Gillena. I see irony here, where even the supermoon is quarantined behind clouds.

  13. I love the shift in your piece, Gillena, from the beautiful flower moon to the pivotal question to the ‘night of quarantined madness’. I have sympathy with the hermit in the woods. Moon shadows are far creepier than ones cast by sunshine.

  17. Maybe the moon can bring hope to the hermit... at least he was in quarantine before the lunacy transforming us all into lunatic hermits.
