The Moon decided one day that it will not draw light from the Sun. The stars heard of this and they were very happy? Because, then they would have their limelight, else the Moon would always steal the thunder. The clouds thought, ‘this is lame dude!’ But the Moon had logic. So the Moon said,
‘My aim is to provide tide and not light. So I don’t have to be luminescent. It’s like wasting resources, power and all that jazz. We‘ve gotta start saving up. The Sun is around only for a little bit now. As it is we have power cuts and problems such all the time! You know, nothing lasts forever…’
Then the Sun heard of this heavenly choice. The Sun said,
‘Awe Luna… You are so cute. But stop being loony and listen up… I understand you care. But our light generation is beyond the tide or the cause to provide light. Do you realize? You with your luminescence inspire so many artists, musicians, writers, poets and such other folk. And, you know it is these folk that happen to be the conscience of the world. So don’t darken yourself, the world will be sold out. Instead, you could just phase out once in a while and in the process save some light.’
Hence, there is a cycle, crescent, no, new, full, et al, phases of the moon, faces of the moon! It’s lovely. Hence the different phases in the moon story! The Universe and the Nature, it’s just amzazing. Lets’ draw some dreams on that canvas. Lets’ get some inspiration too. Lets’ save our light, and tide (because after global warming due to all that greenhouse phenomena, the deluge is the final disaster).
Now, there’s glory!
