Ephemeral mists waft against an azure sky. Lying on the grass, you peer into the heavens, watching frothy peaks float by. In an instant, she emerges, a solitary unicorn prancing toward snowy horizons. As billowing winds begin to whisk her away, she takes flight, vanishing into the firmament. Never forgotten.
