Snowflakes settled on a red purse lying in the driveway until a yellow canary crash landed to scatter them away.

She loved the shiny red purse decorated with crystal snowflakes and a sequined yellow canary. Her finger traced the pattern with longing.

As snowflakes drifted from the pewter sky, a yellow canary squawked and flapped its frozen wings, dodging a red purse aimed at its head.
