The place was bright, colorful, and beautiful.

I was standing below the statues, looking up. They stood tall and glared in the darkness of the night sky, flickering in fuschia, purple, indigo, cyan, lime green, moss green, silver and gold.

The place was exciting, cheering, uplifting and, made me happy. I didn’t want to leave. I wanted to stay there forever.

“Danielle, can you hear me? I think she is hallucinating. We need to reconsider the dose of her medication.”

    I am so happy the photo chosen is The Gardens By the Bay in Singapore… the super trees section. And I agree that looking up at it seems like an illusion or a dream 🙂

    They are very beautiful those lighted tree things. Perhaps, to beautiful to be real? But if it’s so I’d rather not wake up. Just saying, I think her medication is fine. Great take on the prompt!

  5. Is she hallucinating, or does she see the truth while the others are blind? 🙂
