This is my entrance to this weeks #writephoto prompt from Sue Vincent . Another glorious Photo for us to play with, this weeks prompts Title is Swan.
Simon the swan was the last out on the lake as always. All the older and may I say wiser swans were all nested up and cosy. Not Simon as always he was out moon dancing and dreaming moon dreams.
They all said, the old ones, that he would come to no good, have a sticky end. It didn’t matter where they were, lake, river or stream Simon was always the odd one out. Maybe this was true but Simon just wanted to experience more, fly, swim or waddle further than any of the others in his Bevy.
So here he was on his own in the middle of the night on the lake moon dreaming. Suddenly there was a sudden flash of light and flapping of wings. Simon looked up in astonishment as the most stunning and unusual bird… creature? came into view!
“Hello” said a sultry Hiss, “it’s Simon isn’t .” Beak open and lost for Hiss,Simon was stunned how does this magnificent creature know my name flashed through his mind!
Finally finding his voice he blurted out , “How do you know my name! ” Rearing up to her full height (5ft 3ins) the bird of fire ( definitely a bird she had wings) replied with a sexy Hiss. “My name is Phoenix, and I am here to take you Simon for my mate!”
There were a few minutes of silence , Phoenix hovered just above the lake leaving a beautiful fiery trail on the still surface. “Well” she said “Simon would you like to join me , I have been watching you for a long time and I think you would be a perfect mate! ”
Simon thought for two seconds ( quite a long time for him). Then he replied YES!!
So they took off together, Simon and Phoenix flying in tandem wing tip to fiery wing tip. Together for ever with an eternity of excitement before them.
In the morning the rest of of the Bevy searched high and low for Simon but he was gone ….all they found were a few smoky feathers and a burning smell. They all decided that sadly the sticky end had arrived for poor Simon.
As for Simon and Phoenix well they lived happily ever after of course!.
