Digital Whisper 100 Themes Challenge #38 Abandoned

I keep going back to my childhood memories of stories told to me.  There was a princess from the moon named Kaguya Hime who was naughty and wreaking havoc in the heavens. Her celestial parents decide to abandon/banish her from the heavens.  She is sent to earth where a childless elderly woodcutter and his wife find her inside a glowing bamboo tree:

The little family live happily until the girl reaches womanhood. She is then summoned back to her home in the heavens… if you are curious, you can find out more at Kaguya Hime Story.  And here are the credits:
