How to write all of me in less than 10 seconds?

Hmm, let me think... how about DREAMER?

Yup. That works.

The Color of the Universe

December 30, 2020

PROMPT: Spaceship Earth

The universe, a single color.

stir the stars and inky pockets of nothingness
sprinkle the chemicals and lonely planets by the millions, into the mix
a pinch of darkness
a dash of sunlight

The recipe of the universe, the paint of everything. 
Our color... 

is Beige. 

A "Cosmic Latte", if you will. 
Creamy, ivory, off white
        "With a extra shot of expresso, please."

Light wins over the dark;
over the Darkness.
Over the Fear. 
Once thought to be the heart and soul of this expanding universe. 

I used to think the world was forever dark. 
One only had to glance out in the night and gaze into the black hole in the sky, devouring all feeling... 
devouring me. 

There's something so poetic
about how, despite the darkness we see
and the despair we feel,
the anxiety, and the sadness
the hurt, and the pain, 
everything pushing our hearts into the dark;
despite. Everything.

The world is lighter than we think. 
The world, 
                    Is Beige. 

What a world, a dreamer muses, whispers her slight gaping lips, corners tugging into a long-forgotten smile. 
What a beautiful world.

    I love how you've compared the world to a latte. That was very creative. I know I have described the world as grey. But beige is a lot more creative and descriptive. Also less clique. The dancer at the end was a nice touch. It felt ethereal. The creation of the universe was also great. Awesome writing!

    This is a beautiful take on the world! Gorgeous writing; I especially love "stir the stars and inky pockets of nothingness / sprinkle the chemicals and lonely planets by the millions". Well done :)
