“Excuse me while I kiss the sky”

Fandango’s FOWC is radiant, the Word of the Day Challenge is appease, and Paula’s 3 Things Challenge words are orange, mosquito, license

The sun was a radiant orange-pink ball rising in the sky when Bea opened the back door. The dew was still on the grass and the birds were almost in a chatter there were so many congregated around the feeders. Bea noticed one of the feeders was empty, so she filled it, which appeased the chorus for a moment. The mosquitos were too laden with moisture to launch an assault, so Bea stood on the back porch, admiring the paradise she was blessed enough to live in. It was a miracle that the overlords hadn’t yet found a way to tax and license nature’s magnificence.

A lyric from a Jimi Hendrix song filled Bea’s heart and she begin so hum to the tune.

  1. Oooh, don’t say that too loud, those overlords are always looking for new things to tax. πŸ˜‰ My grandmother used to say that those purple/pink sunsets (which were rare in our part of Calif.) were caused when Lady Moon kissed Brother Sun and his blush lit up the sky. πŸ˜‰ Lovely piece.
