She wrapped her hands around her ceramic coffee mug to warm them. Frost crackled lacy ferns across her kitchen window. Sun streamed through creating prismatic patterns across the kitchen counter. Weathered January sunshine lacking warmth on this ice-crispy day.
She took a sip of strong coffee laced with heavy cream. A contented sigh. She pushed a swatch of black curly hair out of her pale bluebell eyes. She was finally surfacing; her brain beginning to whirr.
She snapped on her computer, typing in the pass-word, and watching the orchids screen saver pop up. The mild yellows took her to tropical paradises, where the heavy, heavenly perfume of exotic flowers enwrapped her. She swayed to breezes straight from the tropics, her kitchen warming with each wave.
She positioned her breakfast plate just so. Within easy reach: 1/2 a banana, and 3 thin slices of bittersweet melon. Another contented sigh. Breakfast on the liana, sweet air whirling with butterflies, strong sun dappling her arms. Her breakfast sat untouched. Watching the butterflies and hummingbirds was too distracting.
banana: banana-mania (01.07); coffee: beaver (01.08); bittersweet (01.09); black (01.10); ceramic: blue (01.11); bluebell (01.12); breakfast: blue green (01.13); butterflies: blue violet (01.14)
I am working on collecting photographs to represent the colours from banana-mania to blue green. Then I’ll have a slide show or a gallery to display. Until then, I cheat horribly with the Color Your World: 120 Days of Crayola Challenge!
Better next post, I hope, Jennifer!
