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.
Today is April 30th and the Zesty letter Z (zee in the US, zed in the rest of the world)
Scents and Nonsense
The day opened with a clash of cymbals, the timpani keeping a beat in the background.
After that spectacular introduction, the sky parted apricot and lavender clouds to emerge in a beatific blue that captured the audience’s admiration.
Later after our lunch, the monkeys attacked their meal of bananas and berries. We laughed as they squished the berries on each other giving them a wounded appearance, covered as they were with blue-red splotches, then proceeded to stuff the fruit into their own mouths, smack their lips and stretch their tongues over every reachable surface in order to absorb as much of the succulence as possible.
After our refreshments, we all took a nap, the animals curled into each other with tongues still swishing for the last drops of juice. We clammed shut our mouths against the pervasive sickly sweet odor. The heavens returned to a dull grey metal like an old frying pan.
