Harriet had dreamed in colour last night.
That usually meant something important was about to happen in the next few days.
She’d experienced these Kodak Dreams as she called them since a car accident five years previously. Colour was the only thing of significance, there were no other clues, no shape, no story to identify with, just colour, ranging from one or two to the whole spectrum of the rainbow.
The last dream had been a few months ago, cascading shades of blues and greens sprinkled with tiny silver lights. Her boyfriend had taken her away to a seaside cottage the following weekend and proposed, offering her a sapphire and diamond ring.

She had been walking the dog along the cliff path when she heard the cries for help.
It didn’t take her long to realise someone had fallen and she got on her mobile to call for assistance.
The rescue chopper that was despatched within minutes was red and yellow, the colours of her dream.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth for jelly babies or fruit pastilles. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
