Hello World

Hello World

A Story by Dezaraye

Inspired by "Hello World" by Lady Antebellum. I've been listening to this song all day. It touches me in a very profound way that just can't be put to words.


The sky glimmers above her, so blue she can’t stand it.  Puffy white clouds drift by, bouncing, billowing, blowing in the air and she is captivated.  The music starts within her and she closes her eyes, feeling her body being caressed by the breeze blowing by.  It is warm.  The grass tickles her ankles, her skirt drifting out behind her and she leans into it.


She throws her arms out into the openness that surrounds her and she begins to sway slowly, so, so slowly, enjoying the beauty of this day.  The music’s volume increases and she moves her feet in a circular motion, allowing it to carry her body in ways of its own choosing.  She pirouettes and leaps through the air so gracefully, carried in a dance that is all her own.  She can feel the music vibrating through every fiber of her being.  She is the music and the music is her.


This moment freezes in time and she dances on without a care.  Weightless, she feels her soul take flight.  Her heart is so full she feels that it will burst.  Spurred on by the emotion she continues her dance, tears of sheer joy pool in her deep blue eyes before trickling down her pink cheeks.  Her hair cascades around her in a river of golden curls.  She feels her skirt flowing out around her and a childish giggle escapes her parted lips.


She dances until she is breathless.  Her chest expands with each breath and she can feel new life pumping through her veins.  Lying down, she feels the grass cradle her and continues to feel the music move through her.  She closes her eyes, allowing the sun to bathe her in its golden warmth and smiles.  She can see the yellow pools of light through her closed lids and feel the breeze caressing her still.


She has fully captured this stunning moment within her soul and felt it change her.  Alone in her reverie she breathes slowly filling herself with peace, hope, joy, and love.  For this moment, it is enough.


Hello, world.

Great story telling. This did justice in the realm of getting the message across. Great message. There's lot of times where a story can have a great message to aim for, and have a lot of under lining things but then no one gets it, and if no one gets it, then the point has failed. But in my opinion this did well to get the message across. You made it clear, which is why I think it's good. Keep up the good work. What was also great was that I could imagine the story as I read it, and that is also a strong point of stories. The ability to have the reader imagine it because after all we're reading not watching it, but it was as if I was there as I read this, and that is great. Good job once again.

Dez, this is beautiful! I'm sorry it's taken me so long to get to it. Not only has she captured the stunning moment, but you found a way to encapsulate it with words. Very well done.
