Raise up your glasses because it’s finally Friday! That means that we are going to do another Freewrite Friday writing prompt!
The prompt for this week is pretty simple. Simply look down at what you are currently drinking and write a piece entitled “ (Insert whatever you’re drinking) Dreams.”
It could be Whiskey Dreams, Earl Grey Dreams, Champagne Dreams, Chocolate Milk Dreams, really whatever you’re currently drinking to unwind from the long work week. I’m drinking one of my first glasses of sangria of the season (yes, I am thinking summer thoughts already), so here goes.
They are vibrant, deep, and the colors of all the reds and purples of the evening. These are dusk dreams: dreams that trip through twilight and pick up barely-visible constellations on their way down. At their worst they are the blood orange of sunset; they are tart with long-soaked citrus rind overwhelming their sweetness.
These dreams are filled with summer nights on back porches and bar patios. They are a signal of the restful nights of the season, of the lazy afternoons of time well spent. These dreams are filled with strings of tiny lights that bob in the warm exhale of summer. These dreams are laughter and leave brightness on your tongue.
These dreams are passion and fire. But with passion comes violence, and with tanned skin comes burned skin. These dreams are bruising and purpling. You are bruising and purpling with the cool rush of sangria dreams down your delicate throat. It warms and burns in your stomach. But with warmth there is destruction, and with dreams there are nightmares. Every twilight turns to night. Every night turns to dawn.
What kind of dreams will you be having tonight?
