Energy Ooze

Glass bottles filled with tinctures and mixtures littered the shelves. The mortar and pestle was tinged with traces of herbs left behind. Arranging the brass devices, Tanner noted a slight bubble inflate and burst in his latest tonic, an unusual blend of Digitalis purpurea Juniper Catawba, pomegranate energy drink, and a dash of absorbent earth. The carbonated elements should have evaporated last night – when his energy drink accidently spilled into the pestle – yet bubbles were taking shape. Thick bubbles, sticky pops and clinging splatters, revealed an odd shifting underneath the surface that advanced toward the mouth of the glass decanter.

  1. interesting interpretation of the image …. I like the imaginative use of the tools and objects and churning waters …. how your mind ended up in a lab …. modern day magic 😉

    • Close, an alchemist. I think something bad happened to Tanner, and he is looking for a “natural remedy.” I can’t see his face yet, to determine what is off in his character. Manipulation of the natural world indicates that he’s not satisfied, I can’t wait to see how it unfolds. Thanks for the comment, I B Arora!
