Halloween Project (October/November 2008):
Option Three: Fiction
There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls.
~ George Carlin
Write a flash-fic, scene, or short story involving a night when the moon is howling.
They say the moon can't howl, but I swear it isn't so. I've heard the moon, its painful wails and it chills me to the bone.
On the night of a very full moon, when lightness colors the dark, the animals become restless and serenade the night with ghostly howls. But when the animals are all cried out and settling down to rest, that's when the moon really comes alive.
It whispers and caresses with promises of joy. It conjoles and teases with promises of more. It argues and pleads for your promised love and loyalty. It finally guarantees your very wildest dream, promising to always be there, but running away with sun's first light.
