I am joining Jenny Matlock and gang for her Saturday Centus. Each week we are given a prompt, a phrase in which to design a story or poem around. We are limited to 100 words, not counting the prompt. This week's prompt is...Somewhere over the rainbow. You can use the prompt anywhere within your writing. I decided to also use other lyrics of this song within my story (in italics) So without further ado, I present to you:
Somewhere over the rainbow, dreams are born, hopes are hatched.
That's where you'll find me…
In my latest dream I am in my father's house. I am earnestly mopping the kitchen floor. Try as I might, the stains, though faint, would not disappear.
And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true?
God, I hope not.
However, I recently dreamed of cleaning another kitchen: filthy but with stunning windows, lots of glorious sunlight, storage space and potential. Working on the cupboards, I find beautiful treasures, long forgotten.
Why, oh why can't I
recognize the same fortune within me?
