The View

He loved this view. Lush grass in the foreground and a herd of goats to graze it. Their silver bells gleamed in the sun. Higher up the valley, a cluster of wooden houses formed a small settlement. Many were bright with window boxes of flowers. Beyond them loomed a conifer forest, a dark blot on the landscape. Above the trees, the alp glistened with crisp snow, even at this time of year. A picture postcard view.

He blinked. The hillside collapsed and the chalets were washed away. Goats disappeared before his eyes.

Rain! Pavement artists hated having to start again.
