It’s not always good to mess with magic. Luminous illusions have a way of eluding us in the dark of night…
Lillie McFerrin posts a “Five Sentence Fiction” prompt.
This week it is: Luminous
A New Moonlit Beach
It was supposed to be an illusion.
I, the Great and Mighty Gantry the Magician, was supposed to make the moon spin around in the sky.
Instead, as you can see, it has fallen onto the beach.
Beautiful, shining, and magical in its own right, I, Gantry, now realize that I had no right to have attempted what I did, and I feel wretched in that I do not know if I can rectify the damage.
If I have disappointed you, my loyal fans, in any manner whatsoever, please accept my deepest regrets and an immediate refund of your admission to tonight’s event; however, feel free to stay if you so choose, as I attempt to resurrect the moon to its rightful place – and should I fail, please enjoy strolling along our resplendent new moonlit beach, with my compliments, of course.
Reminded me subtly on the movie Despicable Me :)….great attempt….everyone tries to aim for the moon
I will be on the look out for Despicable Me as i have not seen it.
This was a very interesting and unique interpretation — I’ve enjoyed it very much. And it leaves me wondering … will Gantry succeed? Things to think about …. things to think about. 🙂
No matter… there’s always our new moonlit beach – resplendent actually.
well then wonders will cease 🙂
and we will cease wondering
hmmm …. perhaps this isn’t a good thing then? How boring would it all be!
Very clever – love Gantry’s voice and ability to improvise.
Thanks. I liked it too.
I too liked Gantry’s attempt to try save the act!
When sinking, you got to do something.
Thanks for reading. Randy
Like all entertainers there comes a time when the act falls flat. Then you improvize.
always be ready to improvise.
failure is always the next opportunity.
Unique!! Loved it.. 🙂
thank you. Randy
It was a unique take…liked it 🙂
Care to take a stroll with me along the beach?
