Unicorns sighted in Rare Mountain Snow
It was the last winter storm of the season, building its promise slowly throughout the day, by mid evening a misty dew was drifting downward through the stilled air. In the cooling darkness, this refined moisture turned into the tiniest flakes of snow you could imagine. And all night it came as if rays of light from distant stars, bringing a feeling for levity, a lilting song from the periphery. Then to my surprise,as dawn came to our place, the blue of the mountain sky reached a rare clarity and the ancient home of the gnomes made itself seen, and one of its dwellers along with a winter sprite set out on a journey to seek the unicorns who might appear when such a heavenly snow brought its grace to us.
