365 Writing Prompts: The full moon

When the full moon happens, you turn into a person who’s the opposite of who you normally are. Describe this new you.

There is something very unique about the full moon, whenever it happens and the sky is clear, I find myself in a place I’ve never been. I am lost in my thought and go into an imaginary place where it’s me, Tagore, Rumi, Mirza Ghalib and Iqbal. I carefully listen to their conversation.

Tagore and I are the only Bengalis , the rest of them speak Persian. I am fascinated to hear this language which I don’t understand.

Tagore realizes my shortcoming and helps me out. I begin to understand a few words, but cannot carry on a lengthy dialogue. I’m advised to go back to earth and work on my language skills especially in Persian, so I can participate in their discussion.

Back on earth I turn on my computer and Google the language Persian. I know I must be ready for the next full moon, I tell myself did I really see those people or it was all my imagination. Unfortunately it was just that and I didn’t have to count when I’ll meet them again.

They have left the earth and are now in a better place, without any kind of worries, and I am here with all the trials and tribulations of the world!

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this most interesting post. Like you, I like Persian. I’m studying it now. I’d love to be able to read, in Persian, some of the great, ancient writings.

    All good wishes,

    robert

  2. I thought I was the only one! I simply love, love, love the moon!!! Some call it an obsession haha, but I promise it is not! It is just so beautiful and serene. I love sitting in front of the window and simply watch the full moon and contemplate about life! Isn’t it beautiful…? I love what you described above as well (I find myself in a place I’ve never been. I am lost in my thought and go into an imaginary place where it’s me, Tagore, Rumi, Mirza Ghalib and Iqbal. I carefully listen to their conversation.) Imaginary or not! I’d love to join you one day on this beautiful journey 🙂

    Much love and light ❤
    Shaidi
