(Seventeen harvests past)
Tree swallows dipped and swam on the crisp, cool morn; spilling into the air trills and chatter only delighting the ears. Their bright blue plumage fell in contrast with the solid white clouds that tumbled across this hillside as it burst into the sunlight in shades of pink and yellow and pale, pale blue.
The girl having seen but fifteen harvests could only lie there as shadows and light rolled across her form. She could only find awe in the sights and sounds and smells of a flowering field in planting season. Bees buzzed past her face as if to say hello to the young woman who had joined them this fine day. Butterflies so nearly mistook her for a flower as again and again they tried to land on her nose.
