Autumn Secrets

December 15, 2017

PROMPT: Setting as Mood

Iris ignored the voice in her head telling her of her faults and concentrated on shutting it out. Not that she noticed, but the park around her glimmered with the signs of autumn. A slight breeze flowed through the air carrying the last echo of summer as it shook leaves from their branches and settled them around the park. Above and around her were all shades of red, brown, orange, yellow, and even some dark purple. If one looked hard enough through the trees in front of the wrought iron bench, a sliver of glittering water could be seen. It was a brook that glowed with the signs of life. Frogs croaked and leaped into the water. Dragonflies flitted about, fish splashed in the clear, shallow water, and if you looked really hard, a chipmunk could be seen taking a rapid drink before disappearing into the brush. Yet Iris ignored all of this in her concentration; even the figure that walked up and sat down next to her, opening his mouth to speak.
