Trifecta Writing Challenge: Week 81. Our word was light.

 

I can see the light from here. It’s shining through the blinds as I’m trying to fall asleep, and I’m beginning to realize the futility of that goal. I think it’s the North Star, but I’m too exhausted to care. It’s been a long trip, and I know that I’m nearly there, so I suppose that’s a plus. Maybe one more week before the ship reaches land. I’m hopeful that my son is safe, and that his last letter to me was accurate, that he is ready for my arrival. Our future is bright, almost as the star I see above. Perhaps instead of sleep, I will make a wish and go for a walk on the deck.

  1. I like this! It has a sort of sea diary feel to it.

  2. This is a great, grounded little scene. It makes me want more of the story.

    Thank you for linking up. Please remember to return for the voting!

  3. Suddenly I have an overwhelming desire to go for a moonlit stroll on deck.

  4. Waiting = a burden on the mind. Good job with prompt.
