Thanks to Priceless Joy for hosting FFftAW. Also thank you to Kim of dVerse Poet’s Pub for the Quadrille prompt that must include the word pepper.

Sublime light, 

Peppers the sky.

Tangerine, Tyrian, 

Shading cotton. 

Dawn never swallowed, 

By absent void below. 

Cannot deny light streaming;

Sunlight scorches all. 

Peppered clouds fade, 

Azure erases night. 

Magnificent sunrise, 

Truthfully glorious. 

To those who wander, 

In the dark, 

The light has come,

There’s time, 

Perpetual and infinite. 

Begin again;

It’s never too late.

    I love how you combined the two prompts, some flash needs just those few words to give it the description it needs. Longer words would distract from the image. I loved the “peppered clouds” and how you wove that in to the flash, and yes it is never too late to begin. Peppered clouds made me think of clouds waiting to cry!

      Aw, thank you so much Gina. You give the best compliments! Yeah I felt the quadrille worked great with both prompts. Yeah you are right, waiting to rain, but also peppered its various colors or reflecting many colors from the sky around them. Thanks for reading SD 🙂
