I Color the Moon
I color the moon in bright colors.
I use millions of delightful and colorful flowers to color the moon:
Deep maroon with purple tropical orchids;
Sunflowers with extended yellow streaks; roses with white petals and crimson blemishes.
I send them to the moon tied to helium balloons that take about a journey of a month to arrive.
The balloons travel to the moon zigzagging.
In the first month, I see specks of colors on the moon.
After a couple of months, I noticed concentrated colors.
And after 3 months of continuous effort, the moon starts looking lovely with a multitude of radiant colors.
A pleasing floral scent from the flowers sweeps through the air.
Mass of hummingbirds, bees, and butterflies in jubilance travel to the embellished moon.
At night, I go up to the peak of soaring skyscraper to observe the spectacular moon covered in vivid colors.
