A few days ago I wrote a 50-word story about a lamp post! I wish I’d had Dale’s picture to accompany it. If you’re interested, it’s HERE!
A thousand sparkling diamonds encrust a jet black sky. Snow beneath my feet glistens in the eerie light of a shimmering silver moon.
The hoot of an owl breaks the silence. A fox stands motionless, one paw raised, green eyes staring into mine. A moth flutters ’round a lamp, a bat swoops by.
Eyes heavy, I reluctantly wend my way home.
Throwing open the curtains, I gaze out at the bewitching world I’ve just discovered.
It’ll be gone when I wake, the night’s calm replaced by the bustle of the day.
And so to sleep, wishing I was a creature of the night.
Thanks to Rochelle for hosting and to Dale for the photo.
