I have amended your question slightly to specify that you are assigned to write a descriptive paragraph about the moon, the earth's beautiful satellite. It sounds like a tough assignment, since the moon is pretty far away to be touched or tasted. But if you can get one of the senses taken care of, that would only leave you four to worry about. So it would seem obvious and easy to write about how beautiful or lonely or scary the moon looks to you.

It might also be fairly easy to write about how the moon makes you feel on certain nights, especially when it is full. Many songs have been written about the moon, and most have to do with feelings, often feelings of love. I suppose you could also speculate about what it would feel like to fly to the moon and how it would feel to walk around on the moon's surface, looking down at the earth.

The love songs associated with the moon would be a good way to segue into a description of sounds associated with that beautiful object. You could simply name some of the songs that contain the word "Moon," such as "It's Only a Paper Moon" and "Shine On, Harvest Moon."

You might have to descend to earth to fit in smells and tastes. You could write about how you have sat on your front porch in the moonlight enjoying the scent of honeysuckle (if that isn't too corny) and drinking lemonade.

I hope these hints help you in writing your paragraph.
