The Pull of The Moon
  The Pull of The Moon
The Pull of The Moon

A Piping Pepper Gathered Us
All 'Round Tight,
To Tell Us A Tale
Of The Full Moon And It's Plight.

He Said,
WOE BE TO THEM
WHEN THE MOON IF FULL.
IF YOU GET TOO CLOSE
YOU WILL FEEL IT'S PULL.

All The Peppers On The Ground
Chattered and Agreed
They Said,
If The Haunted Forest
You Ever Hope To Leave...

You Have To Plod On Slowly
Shuffling Our Feet Close To the Ground
Never Lift Your Arms And Try Not To Make A Sound...

For If You Wander Aimlessly
Carefree, Skipping and Amuck
The Moon Will Feel Your Anti-Gravity
And SUCK YOU RIGHT UP!

A-W-E-S-O-M-E transformation, Laura! Flexify? Liquify? Distortion tool? You always keep me guessing! He has turned into one cheerful little fella here, and the moon has become a diamond-drop. Very cool! (Watch out for that moon though... sounds kind of dangerous, to me. Best not be in the Haunted Woods aloooooooone!!) By the way, as always, I like your poetry!

Hi Renata! Thanks Sweetie!

* * *

Gosh Annette! That was such a cool thing to say. Thanks lots!!! :)

* * *

Monnie so are yours! Cant wait to see the other covered bridges you have in store for us!

* * *

Hi Nadya! I did this in a program called WILD PHOTO EFFECTS. You can BLOW things up, stretch them expand etc...Ever seen those greet cards of Cats & Dogs that have HUGE EYES? Tomorrow's image was done with SMUDGE PSE7. HA! The prodigal tool! So glad to have him back! Wait to see!

* * *

Hi Ann! :) Isn't he cute!? (I almost hated to cook him...) HA!

* * *

RETRO! How fun to see you here! Are you insinuating that I am high? HA! Okay, okay...here!

* * *

Hi Chrissy! Yes. We can trust Mr. Pepper. Queen Kewpie said he is the leader of the pepper pack. Humm...Do you suppose this makes him Sargent Pepper?

Don't worry, Sis. You will be fine. Just don't start flailing your arms around. YOU KNOW WHAT WILL HAPPEN THEN...!!!

SLURP!

* * *

Thank you guys and please! We must be very careful in this last stretch of Haunter Forest.

Anything can happen!

A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G!

This is AWESOME, SSSL! Image AND poetry!! I LOVE both!! Fantastic work, Sis. That grinning face is sooooo cute. And the moon looks like a parachute.
But of course I know that it's merely trying to make us feel safe for a moment and then - one mistake - PUFFFF!!! We're gone.
So I'll take your advice and stay close to the ground and focus!!!

Fantastic Laura!! Love your very creative and beautiful work and Pats addition too..LOL..Keep up the outstanding work!!!!
Sorry I haven't been keeping up. Guess I got lost in the woods...Things have been kinda hectic around here the last few days. My wife's favorite aunt unexpectedly passed away Sunday morning so I'll be gone for a few days. Probably next week before I can post or comment again...

Hi Phyllis! You're so sweet! You know, I was in the kitchen cooking and cut a red bell pepper in half and saw the face plain as day. The rest is history. :)

Well, that is just little old "Mio" in my images. I have fun calling my SP's by different names. Sisters and cousins...but I love DDR and use myself as a guinea pig.

Thanks for the dandy visit. :)))
