Wanton Woman Full Moon Mania

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “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.


I have trouble sleeping during a full moon.  I arise, I wander.  I turn on my husband’s music – loud, insistent drumming with bizarre electronic melodies.  I dance in the moonlight, shedding clothes and swimming naked while the pool’s shadows coalesce into fearsome underwater shapes. My body moves in unfamiliar supple arches and stretches.  I eat chocolate and drink wine until my head spins and then I turn on all the lights hoping that someone else will awaken.  I wander from room to room, restless.  I sing and talk and read. Then I prowl the neighborhood sure that the lunar light will guide me home.

And when I’m finally exhausted, I sleep and dream of moonlight.
