Close Your Eyes

Jolene takes refuge in a shaded spot under the huge weeping willow by the dance hall. She lies back against the trunk and closes her eyes, willing the oppressive heat away.

As she drifts off to sleep, she pictures a partially cloudy day with a cooling breeze caressing her skin. The breeze picks up and has now been joined by the lightest, fluffiest of snowflakes. Soon, a light blanket of snow covers the ground all around her.

She starts to shiver and is suddenly shaken awake. She stares in awe at her snow-covered surroundings.

“Just how long did I sleep?”

  1. A wielder of magic in her dreams, or sleeping beauty? Wonderful story, you manage to make me feel the heat, the breeze, the snow flakes.


  2. Dear Dale,

    This is one of those stories one could ask, ‘which part of the story is a dream and which is reality?’ And you can smile sweetly and say, ‘yes.’.

    Very nicely done.

    • Thank you, Isadora. Yes, I do believe the mind, the universe, the law of attraction all help to achieve our dreams! And I’m not quitting till I make it!


  3. I’d like to know what Jolene was drinking at the dance. After that good long sleep she should be ready to rock and roll a bit more. I love this bit of fantasy – most entertaining.
