A Conversation Amongst The Luna Lilac

Mr Dickens settled into his striped, wooden chair and scratched his ear. Having cleared his ear out, he didn’t appreciate the increased volume of the chirping Circada playing their symphony in the various flower beds in the garden. A noticeably irritated expression grew over his face… The glass chinked as the ring on his finger…

A Conversation Amongst The Starlight White

The unbalanced glass of whiskey rested precariously on the arm of his beloved deck chair, the moon sparkles glimmering on the surface of the glass..
