Modern Moon Stories
One night when the moon was out
he was watching everybody. I was having my birthday.
I looked out the window and the moon was bright, but it was the waning
crescent. I was happy because I smiled at the moon and it smiled
back! I had to go back to my party and I waved at the moon and the
moon waved back.
Thoughts about what the moon looked
like when I was born. - I think it was waning because the moon gave
me his health which reduced his size. The moon was skinny because
it is actually God's smile.
On the day I was born my moon was

and the vulture still disagreed. The jaguar took the Moon to a dark,

Once there were animals arguing about the Moon and the Sun. They argued about which should be in the sky. The cat, cow, deer, and fox could not decide which should be up there. They decided to have a race from the woods up to the sky.
The dog won the race, getting to the Moon first. He took the Moon so it would be a new Moon when he had it down on Earth with him. He made up a song for all the animals to sing called the "Moon Jam."
