Then reached for my book and let the story to begin
Welcome, he cried, the boy in blue
To the world of magic, here just for you.
He slowly reached out and took my hand
Then off we set into the magic land.
Dragons and pirates, gangsters and ghouls
Worst of all the dinner ladies from school!
We were the heroes in all the tales
The champions whom never failed
Despite the fun, I soon wanted home,
The boy in blue agreed it was time to go.
He brought me back to my room,
With the solemn promise – see you again soon.
Originally written in response to Writer’s Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge (#WQWWC) now hosted by Marsha Ingrao at Always Right. I had originally thought the theme this week was friendship but it’s open choice. I’ve decided to submit this anyway as I loved the quote.
“Don’t walk in front of me… I may not follow
Don’t walk behind me… I may not lead
Walk beside me… just be my friend”
― Albert Camus
For today’s #maydays prompt follow Albert Camus’s lead and write something on the theme of finding friendship. It’s the last of my #Maydays challenge, I hope you have enjoyed it and maybe even found a friendship or two of your own along the way.
Remember you can write a memory, short flash fiction, poetry or whatever may take your fancy and pingback here so that I can pop by and visit you. Don’t forget to TAG your prompt #maydays too.
