The warm, buttery air…

 

The warm, buttery air; the sky made of aventurine; the farrago of oleander and hibiscus; the rollicking yellow of a kiskadee, as raucous as its song; the grand costumery of a field of blossoming but wayward weeds–all these waves of color lashed my senses, and, unable to stand the now formidable sun, I sought the scarlet shade of a royal poinciana tree, whereupon an anole, resting on a severed black bole, flashed its orange-gold dewlap and bobbed in a curious staccato.

  4. This is beautiful. I have not previously seen a flower edited in this manner. It appears as a spinning top or a merry-go-round. Your words cause one to imagine the fragrant air.

  5. I love the motion! Usually we see flowers bending or swaying, but this is positively spinning! And I learned 2 new and beautiful words — aventurine and farrago. You are an enigma…

  8. So much colour and motion in such a few words – it is a joy to sit back and take my time to appreciate pieces like this, beautiful, moving. I can feel the words doing nice things to my brain, filling it with warm, buttery air and bobbing along with the ending – I’m with Uzoma on this one, to soak in these kind of posts is nirvanic bliss.
