Sewing Moonbeams - wolfiebrewer

The needle of star silver pierced the deep fabric of navy. Back and forth in the darkest night of the year, young Alexander sat on a stool by the window. His long and terribly messy waves of ember were hidden in a white bandana. Deep with the pain of pricking his finger, his eyes flashed like candle light.

A single tear fell onto the cloth of stars and moonbeams. The child's hands trembled as he let his flag wave gently in the unforgiving breeze. How it hurt him so to stay in such a dark and cool place. Someone find me, please. He let the little cloth go into the breeze. It fluttered and fell like a feather of the night.

He looked up and felt a call.
