Retiring Colours

The retired geologist brushed a speck of dirt off his Prussian blue shirt. In the distance, under a mulberry tree, he could see a dog stirring up dust as it foraged in the raw umber soil. The geologist felt in his pocket for his last remaining magic mint. He popped it into his mouth and watched the sky fade to a teal blue.
