Here’s a story in 100 words, the first taken from https://randomwordgenerator.com/ to help me sidestep writer’s block! The final word will be the first of another story and so on until I run out of steam …
Far ahead, through desert haze, a glimpse of palm trees!
Beneath green leaves the glint of water, crystalline, clear as glass. Already that cool draught in a dusty throat, it appears, miracle cure for parched lips and dried-up thoughts!
Hopes spring internal and steps quicken – a burst dam flowing downhill – ever faster as though those slow days under pitiless suns were mere moments, forgotten fantasies. Here and now, at long last, real life again!
But the palm trees dance away from us like phantoms. Waters shimmer, shiver, break. Promises are all hot air, our hopes just tricks of the light!
