"One small step." - A creative writing prompt.

Silvery flakes drifted down, glittering in the bright light of the harvest moon. The blackbird perched itself upon a high branch of a snow laden Fir tree. A light dust of sparkling snow lept from the top as the fluttering wings of the blackbird hovered to make it's landing. Julie tightened her wool knit scarf as she looked up at the crisp winter sky, gazing upon the brilliant pale moon. She extended her arms out into the vast distance. Closing one eye, she cupped her hands around the moon. Got you! She laughed as she imagined removing the moon from the star drenched sky and placing it into her pocket. How selfish of her to be able to keep the luminous globe all to herself. No, the moon was meant to be shared and admired from afar. She had always been enchanted by the moon and the romance that seemed to orbit it. For a brief moment, she wondered if one were to capture the moon, could one extract the romantic energy stored in it's bright luminescence. She of course wasn't mad, she knew that the moon was nothing more than a weightless mass of rock with a flag and a set of footprints, but that didn't keep her from imagining all the same. Dropping her arms to her sides she felt the bitter blast of wind upon her nose and cheeks signalling her time to start home. She turned, leaving a fresh shoe impression in the snow with every crunching step. One small step for Julie, one giant leap towards a warm bed.
