(Author’s Note: I’d like to give a shout out to Jason E. Gillikin, a good friend of mine who I have had the pleasure of contacting and being in contact with for many years. We both grew in our writing, and he is the Editor in Chief of Caffeinated Press, an anthology publisher based out of Grand Rapids, Michigan. He has helped me, in many ways, to get back to writing the way it should be. If you get a chance, you should visit his website: http://www.jegillikin.org/ )
One Day To Fly
by Miles H. Rost
Leo shot up in his bed.
Never one to dally, he reached over to the table and grabbed a charcoal pencil and his paper, and started to sketch.
A smooth nose, sleek lines jutting back from the rounded nose. A bump on the top towards the front, and a long tubular body. Each part of the drawing called upon the memory of his dream, the horror and awe of what he imagined.
Two ellipses, flattened, bisected the main body, rounding on either side, but thin enough to look like the blade of a knife.
The vision of da Vinci was masterful.
Leo left us some rare visions, and you created an interesting vision for your reader.
Ah Leo! Thanks for the AP too!
Sometimes hallucination is better to watch through the pens of an artist.
Maybe he took drugs and that’s where he got all his ideas. What is he drawing here? I couldn’t figure it out.
I like this
Is he drawing his famous flying machine? Great to imagine how that might have come about.
Great glimpse into an artists mind. And an intriguing image.
First off — thanks for the kind words! And second … we’re always accepting submissions!
