I haven't been able to complete a new work for the Three Muses 'Moonstruck' Challenge this week but did write a verse here a few months ago. Yes, I know it's kind of cheating...but...I'm out of action for the next week or so getting some medical treatment. So please forgive me and send some lovin!

Private Moon Series by Leonid Tishkov and Boris Bendikov via Moscow House of Photography 'Private Moon is a visual poem, telling a story about a man who found the Moon and stayed with her for the rest of his life. In the upper world, in the attic of his house, he saw the Moon which had fallen from the sky. At first she was hiding from the sun in a dark, damp tunnel and was constantly frightened by the passing trains. Then she came to the house of the man. Wrapping the moon in a thick blanket, he gives her autumn apples and drinks tea with her. When she finally recovers he puts her on a boat and carries her across a dark river to a high bank, where moon pine-trees grow. He descends to the lower world wearing the clothes of his deceased father and then returns, illuminating the way with his private moon. Transcending the borders between worlds via narrow bridges, sinking into sleep, taking care of the heavenly body, man turns into a mythological being living in the real world like in a fantastic fairy-tale.' Leonid Tishkov

Renee said...

Chrisy I am having a complete conniption because blogger has wiped out all the blogs that I follow. I have lost them and it shows I am following no one.

But I am glad that I found you again.

Chrisy I received a wonderful gift of special products to make me feel better. There was a note that said it was from my friend Chrisy and since I only have one friend names Chrisy I wanted to throw a bunch of hugs and kisses your way and say I love them, and thank you.

Love Renee xoxo
