The Clinic: Photo Rehab #8–Grey Dawn

2015-02-01 07.40.15

Fairy Swamp is slowly starting to come to life after the dry winter.  Rainfall has begun to fill the slough.  The sounds of birds and frogs could be heard, as I slowly walked past.  Crickets were starting to chirp.  It won’t be long now…

This is my entry for Lucile De Godoy’s Photo Rehab for this week.

Thanks for visiting me today.  I always look forward to seeing you.

About Colleen M. Chesebro

Colleen M. Chesebro is an American Novelist & Poet who loves writing paranormal fantasy and magical realism, cross-genre fiction, syllabic poetry, and creative nonfiction. She loves all things magical which may mean that she could be experiencing her second childhood—or not. That part of her life hasn’t been fully decided yet. A few years ago, a mystical experience led her to renew her passion for writing and storytelling. These days she resides in the fantasy realm of the Faery Writer where she writes the magical poetry and stories that the fairy nymphs whisper to her in her dreams. Colleen won the “Little and Laugh” Flash Fiction Contest sponsored by the Carrot Ranch Literary Community on November 2017, and in 2018, she won first place for the “Twisted Travel” category. Colleen lives in Arizona with her husband. When she is not writing, Colleen enjoys spending time with her husband. She also loves gardening, reading, and crocheting old-fashioned doilies into works of art. Learn more about Colleen on colleenchesebro.com.
