Flying

The wind played with her hair as she leaned back and closed her eyes, determined to remember this moment forever. She could feel the smile creeping across her face. She flung her arms out like wings on each side of her. The euphoria she was feeling was like nothing she’d ever felt before. Opening her…

Panoramic

The light surrounding her was brilliant. She raised one hand to covered her eyes to keep herself from being blinded while keeping a firm grip with her other hand to anything solid so she wouldn’t lose her balance. The gentle rocking was nice at first, but soon became loathsome. Karra always dreamed of a life at…

Droplets

She tilted her head up towards the clouds and closed her eyes feeling the small damp droplets hit her face. She took in the moist air and could smell the earth around her. It smelt like her childhood. Like times long gone. Standing on the patch of green, she felt safe and secure. Feelings of…

Earth

The forest was humming with life. Birds swooped down overhead picking off their unsuspecting breakfast from mid air. The breeze sang as it strolled through the leaves and branches of the trees. The moss on the bark of the trees was a happy green. The morning sun broke through the canopy above in golden rays…

The Wall

Rumors about a hidden city had been spreading for centuries. A secret Utopia, if you will; but rumors were all they ever were. No one actually believed that such a city existed. It was just a message of hope passed down from one generation to the next. Hope of a better future. Of better times…

Animals

Have you ever wondered what the animals at the zoo think of you? As you stand there cooing over their cuteness, have you ever wondered if they think you’re cute? If your child is adorable and pink? Imagine the rolls being reversed. Mankind was set to live in a little glass box. Fully equipped with…

Normal

Normal was something the world was trying to achieve. People fought to fit in. They worked to not be noticed. They lived to blend in. Being normal means being alive. The cost of standing out is to high. Years before, to be normal was unappealing. Everyone was unique. Everyone was different. It was a world of…

2 a.m.

Everyone always says that nothing good happens after 2 in the morning. Today I would have to agree with them. I was standing in the middle of the street with my best friend that morning thinking everything was great. We had an amazing evening with friends, wandered the city taking in the sights and sounds….

Clock Tower

The clock tower rang on as it hit midnight. Everyone knew that the fairy tale always ends at midnight. The girl returns to her normal self. The prince scours the Earth for his one true love. That’s the beauty of the story. Love lost then found. That is not my story. My story began on…

Town Car

The city streets flashed by as Sarah looked out the window. She felt the chill of the outside forcing its way in through the frosty glass. The people were almost motionless blurs as they continued down the road. She knew that each person she passed had a story. A life that was unique, but at…

Sunset

I watched as the sun set, soaking in the last rays of light before the warm globe disappeared below the treeline. I tucked my knees closer to me trying to keep in the warmth. I looked at the ground from my perch. It was white with snow. Leaning back against the tree I was sitting…

Travelers

After running for so long, to be sitting still was the greatest feeling. “Good job out there today kid. You made us all proud.” “Thanks coach. I owe it all to you.” I stood up and shook his hand. “Well, that’s partly true, but you’re the one who actually did it.” He smirked. “That’s more…
