Full moon is rising
Hunters stare in eyes of prey
Winter on doorstep
FULL HUNTER’S MOON
Most of our monthly full Moon names come from Native American and early American folklore, and were originally used to mark the progression of the seasons.
The first full Moon to occur after the Harvest Moon (which is the closest full moon to the autumnal equinox) is the Full Hunter’s Moon. Some folks believe that this full Moon was called the Full Hunter’s Moon because it signaled the time to go hunting in preparation for winter. Since the harvesters had recently reaped the fields under the Harvest Moon, hunters could easily see the fattened deer and other animals that had come out to glean (and the foxes and wolves that had come out to prey on them).

My own entry in the new six word story challenge:
Knocked on wood. Turned out fake.
The writing prompt for this week’s Six word story challenge is SUPERSTITION.
Superstition is the belief in supernatural causality—that one event causes another without any natural process linking the two events—such as astrology and certain aspects linked to religion, like omens, witchcraft and prophecies, that contradict natural science.
The challenge for you:
Write a story about SUPERSTITION in just six words. Let a photo or image inspire you to write a story. Or first write the story, and then make or search for a picture to go with it.
Here’s a Six Word Story by Ernest Hemingway.
Such an impact and unseen images in only six words…
Publish your Six word story on your own website/blog and paste the link to that post in a comment to this one here at Figments. I will include your contribution in this post, forming a list of stories.
Will you join me? Will you? Say you do. And share the challenge news.
Have fun writing!
