Day 22: January Mindful Writing Challenge

Walls that are grey. Floor that is grey. A ceiling that is grey.

A monotony of merged non-spectrum colours. Walls that are grey. Floor that is grey. A ceiling that is grey. Light from the tin chandeliers peels the permanent monochrome and lays it on every surface. Yellows that are grey. Reds that are grey. Blues that are grey. Our outlook turns as bleak as the superficial world enslaving us. Faces that are grey. Actions that are grey. Thoughts that are grey. A shutter rolls up and the nature of things flies in on a breeze. Stand on the threshold, look up at clouds that are grey. A sun that is yellow. Sky that is blue.

    Wow, this hypnotised and frightened me. The relentless grey, really got under my skin. And that beautiful transition to life, once the shutter goes up. Gradual, but lovely. Nicely done, sir!
