Midwinter Flowers

She hid away in the attic that morning along with the dried flowers and packed away spring decorations...
it was the beginning of January and it seemed only right.

It wasn't long however before something caught her eye... it was... light.
It slowly seeped in through the shaded window from outside.

Just a peek couldn't hurt. Right?

Astonished at how bright the afternoon sun had become on such a cold winter's day she collapsed on the stairs to gather her composure.

Some strange thing was taking her over...
something not common during the first week of the new year (to her anyway)....
it was...


Bright, bold, life-affirming COLOR!

All it took was a breath of fresh air and she was no longer ashamed to sport flowers in spite of the frozen ground. Unabashedly she stepped down the walk and out onto the street, the vibrancy of her apparel seemed to thaw the icy air around her as she walked.

Soon birds were chirping and woodland animals began singing tunes of spring.... 
or so she quietly wished to herself. 
The End.

  2. You will always be the personification of color. Deep, textured, permeating, shocking, seaping, saturated, bleeding,effervescent ... Color. The world just wouldn't be the same without you.
