Under the Lemon Moon

By Creative Classroom

(Creative Classroom Magazine) Late one night, Rosalinda wakes to see her lovingly cared for lemon tree being robbed of all its fruit. The next day she sees the thief with his family – selling her limones! Then Rosalinda meets the spirit of La Anciana, The Old One, who makes things grow. She gives Rosalinda a remedy that will heal her lemon tree (and her bitter feelings). That night Rosalinda follows the spirit’s instructions and then slumbers under the lemon tree beneath a full yellow moon. When she awakes, the tree is full of fruit and her heart is full of compassion for the man who stole her lemons. This magical story gives practical messages about giving and forgiveness.
