“Speaking of Love”.
For your pleasure and perusal, we present an extract
The sun was low, nestled amongst the wind tossed clouds that obscured a perfect horizon. Haphazard shards of intense pink, orange and red pierced the sky, swirling in a multitude of colour. Sprinkled over the deep-blue blanket, crisp-white triangles floated serenely. A cool breeze curled its fingers around her hair, sending it flying in various directions. She attempted to tame it, encaging it with a thick elastic band. The air was suffocated with the sweet nectar of bird song and the occasional pierce of cicadas, basking themselves in the sun's first rays, on the limbs of the large trees.
The sun rose higher, cascading light onto the gems caught in the
delicate spider’s webs. Her lips enveloped the long, thin straw and she let the cool lemonade slide down her throat. Her fingers grappled with the ice, skating on the bottom of the glass. She slid it in her mouth, cracking it against her teeth and gums. She watched as the sea, spread thick over the bones of the earth, rolled under a floating seagull. It bobbed in contentment and peered back at her, beady, black eyes ever watchful. Her worries drained into the cool sand, ebbing away with the ocean, her breathing following the gentle waves that caressed the shore. Her mind drifted away, and she felt a tide of relaxation overcome her.
