Amethyst Fate

Bluebells in chime are shadows in training; beech trees rising in a sheltering sky. Sunlight peeks through; the merest of raining, to guide the mauve buds to darkness close by. Wind in the forest wafts in refraining. Violet implores the young they must fly. But until they're ready fledglings must wait to one day assume their amethyst fate. 1st Place Early July Standard Contest Sponsor: Brian Strand 7/4/17

This is really pretty Dale. I don't think I have it in me to write like this. Beautifully done. It has a very peaceful tone to it. I enjoyed it. - Dean

I didn't think I'd be able to do this, either, but I was determined. I just needed to be able to hear the cadence in my head. Thanks again, Dean.
