​A Mystical Morning

PROMPT: Talking to “You”

You are teetering on your tip toes with anticipation, looking across the glimmering lake. You have a feeling today is the day, today you will make it. Light on your feet without a care in the world you nimbly bounce off the gigantic lily pads. The only movement around is the ripples being sent out across the lake. You can see the hollow, round stone door nature had formed, you feel as though nature destined it for you.You...

An urban escape

PROMPT: Your World in Three Senses

Once the sound from squashing of the small rough rocks silences and you step out onto the smoother, rock formations and pause; a sense of inexplicable wonder overcomes you. The hushes of the stream travel placidly down the sloping bushy terrain. You take another step onto the natural path formed to carry you across the ankle deep glacial water. The bark is slowly peeling off the towering trees to reveal the fresh flesh underneath, prepared to show off its youthful...

Breakfast at Tiffany's

PROMPT: Zoom Out

Her soft hair was brushed up into a meticulous coiffed bun, embellished with a miniature jewelled tiara. Her eyes hid behind her oversized cat angled sunglasses, featuring her sophisticated expression. The neckline of her raven dress was framed by layers of luxurious pearls; complementing her long, sleek body.

Her eyes stared at the jewels laid before her, with only a mere glass window to obstruct her shallow ambitions.

A window accompanied by an equally opulent street. Tall and grey was...

“Pleasseee let me go”
The pleas of Avrina were quickly silenced with a stony stare.
She decided it was no use, so she went back to her room. She didn’t even know what the meeting was about, but that just made her want go even more. She climbed up her ladder onto the rickety worn roof, avoiding the grime and muck that built up on the tiles she carefully picked a clean spot to revise her plan.

The ballerina posed perfectly upright,
In a desolate circumstance.
Her arms stretched gracefully,
flourishing lively growth from every movement.
Young and alone,
She created her own world.
She poised distinct against the scene,
while simultaneously fitting.
Her sanguine presence,
embodying her serene surroundings,
Would forever perpetuate in her performance of life.

PROMPT: Lexical Catharsis

Today was the day. Butterflies were fluttering in my stomach causing me to feel nauseous. After much begging and my mother telling me money doesn't grow on trees I finally had new shoes. When I got them though my heart quickly sunk as they weren't the right colour, but I knew beggars can't be choosers so I built a bridge and got over it. 

I stared at the saucepan, my eyes unmoving, waiting for the oats to absorb the water....
