A Moonlight Tryst

Trifextra: Week Fifty-Two

It’s Friday,so time to do something “extra” at Trifecta.This weekend,they have decided to throw us a googly & send many of us back to school ,for a refresher course in English language:-)

Yes,they want us to give them a 33-word example of personification.  Wait.  What?  You forget what that is?  It’s the practice of attaching human traits and characteristics with inanimate objects, phenomena and animals (http://literary-devices.com).

Well,here comes my submission-ignore the blush please;-)


A Moonlight Tryst


Velvet night kissed me as I stepped into the garden. Gentle breeze embraced me. Flowers smiled knowingly. Stars winked .Trees beckoned. Leaves whispered.

Then, the Moon beamed, announcing the arrival of my lover.

  1. What a great opening! I love descriptions like this, the moonlight gives everything a dreamlike appearance! And the lover, supported by nature itself, like the frightening appearance of the soul mate makes it all more thrilling!

    • Oh,Sugarhigdd,thank you for this beautiful comment-you made it sound so much more romantic & lovely than I did:-)Was just going off to bed-here its 4.30 a.m-almost dawn,lol!

    • Ha!ha!Glad to have been able to add a lil warmth to your cold night there:-)Here,the wind still hasn’t lost its nip,for which am glad-Indian summers are hot & nothing to look forward to except maybe the mangoes.Thank you for liking this

  2. Awww. That’s sweet! What’s funny is that you used the word “refresher” in your intro. I wrote the post when I was dog tired, and I could not, for the life of me, come up with the word I wanted. I kept thinking “rehash,” “revisit,” . . . REFRESHER. Thank you!

    • Thank you,your response made me grin:-)Its 2 a.m here & I know that feeling(mind you,I am not even working at a job & still I get tired,lol!)-in fact all this is erasing my memory-this being up till dawn-now,i will have to go check what i wrote in the intro,ha!ha!Oh,I definitely know about not getting that “word”-I am like hey it starts with “r” -& go traipsing along all the shops show-casing these string of words & just not find what I want & then in the middle of something it will return to me with a bang!My hubby & daughter tease me no end about this lapses but what can I do?Glad you found the word in my post though & apologies for rambling on:-)
