Da Count in 55-Light

Beads of dew
shining on flower petals
reflecting the watercolors of dawn
light piercing the leaves
sunbeams filling a room
gentle light bathing a cheek
gleams sparkling from eyes
alive with mischief
candle flame warming skin tones
highlights and shadows parting
then closing like dancers
choreographed and marking time
as the sun traces its path.

My Saturday Flash Fiction 55:

He took careful aim.
It was evil mean and nasty to center the good lady in his crosshairs.
Her disposition was angelic and her intentions always good.
Finger on the trigger, he slowly squeezed while holding his breath.
"This is going to hurt me more than it hurts you," he whispered quietly.
You've been tagged.

The mischievous eyes MUST be yours.

Except, wait, your eyes are tie-dyed.

Must be one of your kid's eyes?
