talon

The grass poked up from the soil like talons, grasping for life. In the dead of winter, they were the only color that I could see.

cabin

A cabin in the woods, blanketed in snow. It is dusk. Light quickly dissipates as fog rushes in. Almost imperceptibly slowly, the door creaks open.

gown

The veil didn’t quite cover her tears. As she slipped her hands into her pockets (remembering her mother’s odd look as she sent dress after dress away for their lack of them) her fingers close around the knife.

view

There is a giant picture window at the end of the hallway. Clear glass, slightly smudged at shoulder level, framed in whitewashed wood. The shutters are thrown ajar, the wood splintered at the base. A lavender curtain waves wildly in the breeze.

centerpiece

There is a house. It is whitewashed with white shingles and a green yard in front. Curtains edged with lace are open over the kitchen windows. Inside is a table. The glass swan centerpiece lies broken upon it.

solitaire

Orange suit, grey walls. Only orange and grey exist in this place. 6 by 3 — she knows exactly how many paces long and wide the room is. Sometimes, she feels like every breath she takes is stealing air from the room. Those are the nights she wakes up sweating.

warfare

Drums beat. Like blood, like mortars raining down from above the trenches. And this is morale? Dirt drops in clods around your head and you flinch, expecting every touch to be the last. Shells shriek in the air.

stacks

Stacks of books tower overhead, bending inwards, stretching reality at the seams. Just outside, cigarette butts form smoldering stacks. The wind picks up, breathing fire into the ashes so they spark.

prosperous

Gold filled the room, topped off with silver like a particularly suspicious mixed drink topped with foam.
