I sat outside last night looking at the Moon in the calm quiet night. And as I listened to the night air, listened and breathed it in, filling my lungs in with the sweet air of the cool night, I suddenly realized something odd. Something so perplexing and confusing that it boggled my poor brain to a point of bewilderment.
I looked up at the Moon and realized that it had gotten closer. What? Huh? I felt like it had moved?
I rubbed my eyes and looked up again.... and it was closer than before. No way, maybe it was a simple trick of the dark eerie night before me.
I turned my head, looked back up, and it seemed closer than ever.... wide as my eyes could see. What the heck was going on? Maybe my mind couldn't comprehend the sight before me?
I shook my head, tried hard to think it wasn't real, and when I looked up again..... it was about a mile from my face!!!
I screamed..... and suddenly woke up. I had passed out on the damp wet grass from being sleepy, and as I looked up at the Moon before me… far away where it usually should be I suddenly felt relieved and at ease.
I blinked and I suddenly felt like it was somewhat closer?
I blinked again.... closer.
Blinked twice more..... closer and closer.
Closed my eyes for 3 seconds, then opened them..... the Moon was an inch from my nose.
I screamed and passed out. I woke up the next morning and saw the Sun in the sky..... it seemed like it was getting closer?
The End. 🌕
