Where the Moon Is Always Full

Imagine a desolate landscape

where the moon is always full,

where living trees are always leafless,

and a hawk always sits on a branch just so;

where snowfall gathers in the same places,

and only the bark of a bush nourishes a lone goat.

It’s always the same every time you visit –

a place of dreams.

World of Warcraft is filled with dream-like places. This image from Drustvar at night shows one of them. There’s something eerie about it and yet serene too. Ichabod trees jabbing the sky with the tips of their limbs contrast with the melancholy warmth of an old abandon mining cart. Yet the full moon brightens the snow and offers a moment of reflection for the weary hunter who has stayed too long in the mountains. It is time for this solitary hunter to give up the hunt and go home to bed, perhaps to dream of a desolate landscape where the moon is always full.

About Lotus Greene

I started the blog called "Educating Lotus" in 2011, shortly after I began exploring the virtual world Second Life. With friends I met there, I migrated my virtual life to World of Warcraft (WoW) and joined an educators' guild. Lotus Greene is my gamer name, one I kept when I started another blog in 2015 called "Not Quite Ignored," which originally focused on the lighter side of news and now also includes political news and opinions.
