Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt # 233 “VELLICHOR”

by Ami (Gypsie) Offenbacher-Ferris

The heavy, window paned door slams shut behind me. The tinkling of the brass chimes hanging from the knob cheerfully serenade new-comers and sing of impending revenue to the shop owner.

My nostrils luxuriate in the heady aroma of worn bindings, weathered pages and endless dreams.

    A beautiful description. I really like the second sentence, the idea of the brass chimes singing of impending revenue to the shop owner – what a lovely metaphor! 🙂
