Mångata – Writing Prompt # 88 – January 4, 2015

Click Image for Credits


Yves tells us:

Mångata is a Swedish word for the glimmering, road-like reflection that the moon creates on water. This is quite a beautiful term (Moon Road) so feel free to write about it as is.

If you want to take a fantasy approach consider this:

Where does the road lead? Does it lead to a mystical place? To a treasure? To your beloved? To the netherworld or some other plane of existence? Do ships become lost here, lose time?


About Georgia

I love to read...I like to write...I've travelled the world and seen the sites. I'm past my prime and feel so young, especially when near the young. I'm writing this blog, to remember, to think and to share...with the hopes that someone else will make a comment that will stimulate new thoughts and pathways. Actually, I'm a gabber, so the logical extension of gabbing is blogging! ;-)

    I shall come back to this…

    There is a word in English for mangata.
    Though not many are aware of it or think it is made up – and it is:
    moonglade. It isn’t in the two online dictionaries that I first looked at.
    But I know I’ve found it in bound dictionary a few years ago.

    I found it by just putting moonglade in the search –

    She shone down
    in all Her brightness
    shining her reflected rays
    across the water
    where innocent travelers
    thought to follow
    the invisible road
    into the depths of
    the Moon’s Love
