Who needs reality, anyway? Me and my pen can go far, far away from this depressing reality.

The Weather

Created and Composed by The Enchantress of October 13

My breath makes strange, swirling patterns on the window glass.

What I see swiftly liberates a sigh from my lips and convinces me, with a sneer and a grimace, to not write what I see outside my window.

The empty roads are disheartening, the signs in shops ripping tears out of my eyes. The signs apologizing for the inconvenience. So instead, I jerk my pen away from the page.

I tear it out, crumple the page and throw it into the fireplace. It quickly catches aflame, and the ink bleeds and contorts itself. Instead, I write the dream. Who needs reality, anyway?

My breath makes strange, swirling patterns on the window glass.

What I see swiftly liberates a smile from my lips and convinces me, with a nudge and a wink, to write what I see outside my window.

I let the ink from my pen flood the page and uncork a bottle in the back of my mind.

I describe it all; the people stopping and smiling at each other in the street, the trees lining the avenue and the tall, sandy townhouses sheltering the street.

I describe the newsagents at the far end of the street. The book-store smiling from number 12.

Rosie and Shane Hamilton are working in their garden, but really the newly-weds are just staring into each others' eyes. Richard Downing is painting the door of number 16.

I crane my neck to see the Jerry kids, Holly, Jaiden, Layla and Rory, having a water fight.

Rose Dakin is perfoming a play to some kids she decided to foster, three girls, something like Luna, Raven and Ivy. She stops to read them a story, smiling.

Venus Parson is putting a sign up in the window of the newsagents.

Everyone is happy. It's almost like...... like a dream.
