* The tiles identified with an asterisk (*) were part of June’s Pandora’s Chaos challenge. Our writers were challenged to create a response to the first three stanzas of “Moonlight” by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow as follows:

“As a pale phantom with a lamp
Ascends some ruin's haunted stair,
So glides the moon along the damp
Mysterious chambers of the air.

Now hidden in cloud, and now revealed,
As if this phantom, full of pain,
Were by the crumbling walls concealed,
And at the windows seen again.

Until at last, serene and proud
In all the splendor of her light,
She walks the terraces of cloud,
Supreme as Empress of the Night.”
