This is for AMMC a Christmas Anthology set up by Laura, Missy and Nick.
Gossamer threads hung, decorated with frozen diamonds, and beneath the lacy webs Winter rested her head on the stony floor. Swirls of vapour rose from her nostrils and tiny blue flames licked across her tongue. She sighed.
An amber glow suffused the sky with light, banishing the indigo skyline over the horizon, and the vista smouldered beneath an ethereal haze. Snow clothed the valleys, and ice clung to every rock and ridge. Icing-sugared trees blended the woods together, evergreens bathed in a blanket of white and leafless trees stood dipped in sherbet. A cotton-wool carpet covered the grass before the cave and red berries shone like rubies peeping through earth’s crystal mantle. Lakes shone like glass, and early-rising village folk danced across the sheets of ice.
This is a preview to the story that can be found within A Symphony of Dragons. It has become one part of my symphony, a composition, of A Symphony of Seasons… You can find this enchanting book of short stories in many outlets in both paperback and eBook or at my publisher BHC Press.
Read previews to Spring’s and Autumn’s tales: Spring Symphony and Autumn Flame.
Beautiful. So evocative!
Again your descriptions touched me. I love this and so love your Season Dragons. You have to do a Spring and Summer, just because.
Definitely waiting for the chance for Spring and Summer to turn up!
What a colourful, descriptive journey of patience and love. A very clever idea too. xx
I love your writing style! And the imagery is so vivid, the dragons so real, I literally held my breath lest I disturbed the magic.
Thanks so much, I think I held my breath writing it too 🙂
