for 100 Word Challenge – Prompt: Dream


 

Collectively Dreaming

The weekly meeting was called to order. They sat around in a circle to discuss their latest dream. The same dream, collectively.

“The sky was bright blue, white clouds hovered over a green pasture…” began one member.

“And strange creatures roamed in the field…” stated another.

“They’re one race, but some are yellow-haired, some black-haired, and others red-haired…” a third surmised.

“And their eyes! blue, green, brown! Strangest things I’ve ever seen,” a fourth declared.

Everyone nodded with their silvery heads. They stood up, walked across the crystal ground and looked up at the violet sky with their yellow eyes.

  1. Delicious and quirky use of your 100 words. i love this!

    Ally 🙂

  2. Oh cool! A uni-mind! Great piece!

  3. Love this! We all exist in the collective minds of an alien race. You painted a fascinating picture.

  4. It took me a moment to realise the role reversal. A clever little piece! I’ve always wondered how aliens would see us humans… I mean, probably with some degree of curiosity and terror. For example, the gas we breathe – oxygen (yes, mainly mixed with nitrogen, but indulge me!) is volatile enough to serve as rocket fuel…

  5. Loved the idea you went for here, great job!

  6. I love this one for sure! You do these so well! I was in a great woman’s circle once and this reminded me of that. Thanks for the memories and great post!

    • Thank you, Annette 🙂 I am glad you enjoyed my little story and that it invoked memories for you 🙂 x0x0x

  7. This really creates some great images!

  8. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if inhabitants of other planets have different colored hair and eyes, trees and sky. That idea fascinates me.

What's on your mind? Let me know!
