Beneath the vast, ever expanding sky, Sol and his celestial cast of players perform in a cosmic display.

Pirouetting across a blue velvet backdrop, they paint swirls of gold and indigo, marmalade and champagne on the canvas.

Beyond the curve of the earth, beyond the reach of the moon, beyond the spell of the siren, a paradise lies hidden. A garden of such beauty, none can describe, but all long to see.

Oh, to be on that stage, dancing and whirling, adding my voice to the song, putting my brush to the canvas, yearning for an invitation to that garden.

The 100 Word Challenge, a writing prompt created by Velvet Verbosity, takes a single theme to tell a story in only 100 words ~ no more, no less. This week’s theme is ‘Beyond.’

    both were just gorgeous. *sigh*
