Thursday Photo Prompt

She never knew there were golden swans,

Perhaps her eyes were playing a trick on her.  

The evening was very dark, and yet the swan glows.

Even the water still glows with his wake.

He must be a magical being, for in the day he is white like all the others.

This golden glow may not be seen by everyone.  

Could I be the only one privy to his secret?

I reach to touch the sparkling wake

And my hand feels a strange sensation.

The swan turns back towards me and transforms.

I look down and my hand is wet with gold.

The swan is gliding toward me and changing as he nears.

I step back on the bank, unsure of what I’ve done.

He utters incredulous words as he stands in the form of a man.

“You have broken the spell.”
