The Six Sentence Story prompt – Foundation

I caught the happy train today.
The world outside the window
was a kaleidoscope.
I couldn’t help
but clapping and flapping my hands
at the ever changing beauty
before my hungry eyes.

I am dreading to return to my padded cell.
I can never understand why they call it a calm room.
Why is sanity built on the foundation of deceit?

  1. What a fabulous first line! The excitement and enthusiasm totally carried me away. The second part? I don’t know that I ascribe to the sentiment one “can’t enjoy the sunshine with experiencing the rain”.


    1. Thank you for reading and commenting! 😊….The person has been confined in a mental hospital ward only experiencing clinical surroundings, a train trip is as great as a day in an amusement park..😁


  2. As I read the first stanza, I saw all the kaleidoscope colors flashing brightly, but with the first words of the second stanza, the colors immediately faded to grays and browns. Wonderful six!
