Picturesque memories of sunshine

Fire always drew him, conjuring picturesque memories of sunshine. He recalled the profound impact of seeing his first glorious rainbow as a lad… O, how delightfully that sun had refracted through those suspended droplets!

Smiling, Vadim shook himself out of his reverie and, appreciatively, licked the last salty hint of blood from his lips.

  1. I would spend endless days in sweet reverie if my quivering feather could adhere to such amazing discipline of steady rhythmic syllables of word & mind-blowing picturesque original thought; classic in every essence of the word then adorn a blank page with the most breathtaking embellished word phrasing to my blank page, which so often just lay there staring back at me longing for these lush vistas you paint.
    You hold such remarkable strokes in your hands. I went back to read these memories of sunshine; not once, neither twice, but thrice and of course I shall read it again, captivated by that sweet twist, moving away from vampire days, staring into the fire he tasted and drew blood by the mere thought of her sweet kiss, he bit his bottom lip
