E for EXCITING ... ANOTHER A-Z CHALLENGE
Thanks again everyone for your wonderful comments yesterday. So far this challenge is amazing. I have learned so much from other writers and I am pushing myself to be creative and different with each post. I just hope I don't run out of ideas before the end. I have to admit E was a challenge. I hope you all enjoy today's post.
Palm trees sway from the ocean breezes, their fingers beckoning to a mysterious stranger. Crystals of sand skitter across the dunes as the call of seabirds echo beyond the crashing waves.
A kaleidoscope of colors streak the vast blue sky as wispy clouds lock together in a celestial dance.
Moment by moment, the sun sinks low into the horizon as the distant waters inhale the blazing sphere with its final swallow.
Dusty colors blend into one as each breath of the wind blows them out to sea. For once brief second the earth sighs, foreseeing the inevitable.
As if composed by the heavens, pinpricks of light pop to a silent orchestra as a crescent moon unites in a glorious crescendo piercing the black velvet sky.
How could a word sum up this miracle? Oh, yes it can be done, although it has been lost in our hapless speech for decades. It is a word as alluring as the evening sky.
I must confide it is EVENTIDE.
