Inspiring Soundtrack: Audiomachine – Homecoming – Tree of Life

Until this moment, she believed brown so drab. Now it glimmered as inspiring as the greens incited by the horse’s tread, as breathtaking as a rainbow around the moon.

A tiny smile tickled her cheeks and her eyes, and she reached for the sunflower. Her fingertip heated, sizzled, flushing as pink as a blush. She shook her hand and brilliance as radiant as a star alit on her finger.

“Oh my!” She gasped and dared to meet the horse’s eye. The world swam in those inky pools, and her burning finger glowed in their depths like a signal fire. “Flames destroy. Light gives life. Which is this?”

The dapper man and his virile mount shifted from foot to foot, prancing, waiting. The steed’s soft snort warmed the breeze, sprouting a shower of petals — cosmos, dahlias, and violets.

She understood the decision belonged to her. Without fully understanding where her passions stood, she touched her finger to a twig.

  2. Greetings Mary, Samantha and all the rest of you fine people.

    Mary, ah your words befitting the music. The ambience doth continue with wonder, splendour and magic. And her finger upon the twig, where the story now goes?

  4. Oh, Mary- what gorgeous writing! There’s so many visual images here that are just breath taking- the light, the color, the vitality in the plants growing. Just breathtaking.

    And my favorite part is the magic you’ve introduced and the element of the character’s choice in whether or not she uses it.

    Love this!
