Legends of old
foretold your coming
so the jealous Weaver hatched a plan
daring and bold
luminescence was stolen from a million stars
and woven with magic into a matchless quilt
decorated with windowpane oyster shells
and priceless pearls
in a vain attempt to match the brilliant shine
of your imminent beauty.
Innocent and unaware you came
stroding boldly through the pounding surf
whitecaps splashed in ecstatic glee
against your smooth olive skin
the wind whipping your wild alabaster hair
a natural love of life
flashing from those glorious green eyes.
Upon being bathed in your presence
the Weaver immediately knew he had failed
that with each confident stride you took
he was losing turf so The Weaver offered up his quilt
as a gift to robe you and cover your pristine nakedness.
Once this immaculate quilt was clasped around your neck
and gathered in your hands
beauty and magic united sparkled and swirled
dipped and swayed until you arose to eternal majestic heights and so The Moon was born.

Who are you? Are you a brave knight? A warrior brandishing your sword, ready for battle. Are you a dreamer? Away with the fairies, losing count of fireflies whilst searching for Neverland. A goth? Who feels right at home with the monsters hiding under the bed, who loves to dance a dervish with the devil on the stroke of midnight. Or perhaps you are a dragon-slayer? Or a soul snatcher? Basking in the heat of an eternal flame. Or maybe you’re a witch? Hiding deep in the woods, practicing dark arts beneath the light of a full moon.
