Writing Exercise: The color blue

Updated: Oct 31, 2021

Back to "Writing Exercise"


I am sitting at the beach. Sunshine. Not a cloud.


The rolling waves are mesmerizing.


Then I see it.

Arms.

Waiving.

I cannot hear them.

I cannot tell who they are.

Don't care. Either.


A step.

A gallop.

A dive.


It's cold, the waves push me away.


But I get to them.


Limp in my arms.


But breathing. Not that at this moment I can tell.


At the shore, I notice the blue of their lips.

Turning purple, then red.


They'll be fine.


So will I.

 

Not based on real events.
