Prompt: Write about a moment you wish you could freeze forever
I stared out at the valley from the pass above the river. To the right there was a frosted mint-green field. To the left the dove-grey mountains were adorned with glittering snow-beaded trees. The sky was such a pure silver I was surprised to not see a reflection staring back at me, but instead watched as charcoal birds beat their wings on their annual journey back north. The deliciously chilled breeze danced across my face and whipped my hair into a tangled foxtrot. I could hear as that same wind blew through the trees rattling the icy branches as those birds overhead called, and the new-returned river gurgled below. The air smelt fresh and crisp as an apple. I closed my eyes and breathed in deep. A soft drop of rain kissed by hand, the first rain since the fall. I never felt more at peace. I wish it could have lasted forever.
