For the second year I decided to participate in the A-Z Blogging Challenge. Each April bloggers write for 26 days (Sundays off). Each day is a consecutive letter of the alphabet.
Many bloggers post on a theme such as poetry, photography or an aspect of writing.
This year, since my poetry and very short fiction collection, The Bench published, I thought a preview would be appropriate.
Today is April 2nd Brought to you by the letter B
The Flower and the Butterfly: A Love Story
The purple aster plump with nectar bends in the wind throwing off her sweet smell while petals float in the breeze.
A butterfly, in hues of gold and vermillion, sniffs the air finding an aroma in the west.
He follows the scent, hovers, flaps wings over the aster, questioning.
Aster churns out her sugar.
Soundless, the petals caress the butterfly who snuggles into the nest of ambrosia
and falls into the flower rubbing his head against the petal pillows.
The bloom envelopes the insect, and purple tinges his gold while spots of yellow merge into the aster’s purple.
As with the previous post this too is a Drabble (a story in 100 words). You may have guessed drabbles are my preferred writing style, when possible.
Brightly anticipating your Blogs
What’s the most unusual love story you’ve ever written?
