I wrote this for homework for a zoom writing class. The prompt was a man and a bird and a tree.
I also sent it to Paragraph Planet, as it is 75 words long.
The Druid at the Tree.
The autumn equinox rusting at sunset. The wheel of the year relentlessly turns. He stands quiet and alone on the high hill beside the ancient tree that is silhouetted against the rose-gold sky that is losing its light as the sun begins to fall. Out of sight and soon out of time in this still moment out of time. The blackbird startle
sings and captures his languid soul, taking it far away.
