Daughter of the Moon

~Image Source~
Larissa had been different from birth, a child who preferred to be by herself, keeping company with imaginary friends.  As she grew older she was often mocked for her steadfast belief in fairies and dragons, and magical places; yet it never seemed to trouble her much that others didn't see life as she did.  In fact, she felt a bit sorry for them, realizing that they were so stuck in their rigid beliefs that their hearts held no space for anything that strayed from the black and white lines of logic.

Larissa knew that the world was filled with secrets waiting to be discovered, and often night time would find her wandering outside, communing with the moon and listening to the wisdom of spirit creatures who came to visit her in many forms.  Entranced by a dragon fly which seemed to glow with its own light, she felt no fear as she followed it deep into the woods near her home late one evening.  Hearing faint strains of music and laughter, she soon found herself in the midst of a campfire gathering of wee elves and fairies eagerly waiting to crown her as their queen.

  2. nice... the principle is truer that we seem to be able to remember, as we grow older. The world is so much within, there is always the chance, however fleeting to catch at very least a glimpse of that world-that-should-be!

    1. I agree, Clark! While we all know the tangible realities of everyday life, perhaps there really is something more that we have stopped seeking as we grow older.

  4. I remember a book I had when I was a child that was all about the little people that lived in the ground. It was such a wonderful little book. It had large beautiful drawings of their home in the ground.

    Great story for the Six Sentence Stories.

    1. That sounds like a wonderful book! We are so much more willing to accept magical things when we are young, and those beautiful images have remained with you!

  5. Larissa's imaginary friends....may be imaginary to many, but they certainly were real to her and she was indeed their Queen. Wonderful story. :)

  6. Lovely story, the kind i always wished would happen to me, but i'm too practical for the wee folk to take me in. That made me sad, even as a child.

    1. I was always a pragmatic child too, Mimi, I think that I am more of a believer now than I was back then!

  9. Beautiful story, Josie. Did the photo inspire you or did you write the story after seeing the wonderful photo? I hope, as you say,this is the preface of something more.

    1. Thank you Val! As most often happens, I have a story idea in mind, then find the perfect illustration. Once I find it, the words seem to flow easily. If I am able to retire someday I think I shall spend my time writing stories, and perhaps continuing some of these. . :-)
