#Three line tales: Lavender fields forever

For Sonya’s Three Line Tales photo prompt.

The lavender fields stretch silent and scentless, their parallel banks of gaudy colour disappearing from sight over the hills.

We still marvel at the glorious (unnatural) colour, but the unmistakable scent is a faded memory, the sound of bees relegated to audio histories,

and we never talk about what the lavender harvest feeds.

  1. Cool hat-tip to The Beatles in the title. I know little about lavender except it’s purple–an enticing kind–and is good for making people calmer. The prophecy of having it all gone in the future (“a faded memory, the sound of bees relegated to audio histories”) speaks too truly to our current practices.
