Saturday Mix: Personification

This week Sarah gets us diving into the depths of PERSONIFICATION. Our challenge is all about the use of personification in our writing. You will need to use the statement provided in your response – which can be poetry or prose.

Our statement using, personification is:

The shadow of the moon danced on the lake

Under the light of a million stars,
The shadow of the Moon danced on the lake
To an orchestra of birdsong
On a gentle breeze.
It had a mind of its own,
Playfully dipping to Nature’s rhythm.
The trees held out their branches
And the Moon stepped into them,
Waltzing and gliding across still waters.
Her shimmery glow provided a path
For the stars to follow:
The shadow had no choice
But to dance in her wake,
And thus Moon and Shadow
United and performed
Their own water ballet.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I don’t generally use prompts but you remind me to always refer to the fundamentals of writing from time to time. I generally write from concept to piece, with little place for structure but I will try to at least remember personification, when I use it so I can more effectively convey certain emotions through it. Thanks for the heads up
