Felt like getting weird with this one. 


The world is a blank canvass.  Since it came came into existence, the world has been white, waiting for purpose.  Out of nowhere streaks dark blue, a meteor darting across the sky, filling in the void of white.  Strips of green grass grow, reaching for the sky but falling well short.  Careful lines of brown and black appear, a horse popping into existence.   The world is quite busy now, animals are littered across the surface, the sky filled with birds and a bright orange sun.  Colorful violets are sprinkled across the fresh grass.  With one final swoop, a rainbow, every color in the box, is spread out across the sky.  Who could this benevolent creator be, and what are these tools of creation?

I wouldn't worry about doing it correctly; just write and see where it takes you.  Read other posts and check out other writing styles. 

I liked what you wrote and how you focused on the mental aspect of keys and how they represent adulthood/maturity. 
3  ObjectWriting / Object Writing Word Of The Day / Sunglasses on: February 16, 2019, 11:06:32 PM
That beam, piercing through my eyes like a hot knife through butter.  One second I'm there, the next I'm in a white light.  Panic as my hands fumble around.  Never go towards the light; I think to myself.  In an instant, my sunglasses go on, and a deafening horn blows my ears away as I head straight towards a metal demise.  In another instant, my car leaps back into it's lane.  Squeal of tires and burning rubber.  Then silence.  The sky looks like a painting, globs of orange and red.  Beautiful but deadly.  Next time I'll have my sunglasses on.

Very descriptive

The giant arm creaks into position over me.  The attendant points people to their seats and secures everyone.  I close my eyes; anticipation ripples through my body.  My heart beat and breathing both quicken.  With a sudden jolt, the cars leap forward, metal scraping against metal.  We start to climb the intimidating mountain.  Higher and higher we go, nervous chatter filling the air.  Green tree tops,  and ants scurrying around the park.  We climb so high I can touch the fluffy white clouds.   At the very top, time itself seems to stand completely still.  Without warning, we fall.  My stomach tries to lurch above my head, my arms try to raise but quickly grab hold.  Playful screams now fill in the silence.  Terror is replaced by exhilaration. 
6  ObjectWriting / Object Writing Word Of The Day / Comb on: February 12, 2019, 06:28:20 PM
The bell rings; I walk outside for my ride.  Not a ride home, but to the hair salon.  The smell of hair product fills the room.  Women sit in the waiting area, chatting and reading their magazines.  Stylists scurry between their customers, washing hair, styling hair, cutting hair.  I walk to the chair  and hop on.  The stylist quickly adjusts the chair and the chair announces that it's time for a hair cut.  Dazzling bright blue liquid sits in a jar on the shelf, with various coal black combs soaking.  As I day dream, a chorus of snips fills the background, accentuated with an occasional buzz.  I hop down to pick my prize.  A sugary cherry sucker to keep me coming back.   
7  ObjectWriting / Object Writing Word Of The Day / Baseball Hat on: February 11, 2019, 06:46:02 PM
The smell of popcorn and peanuts wafts through the air, and like a fishermen reeling in a fish, I can't help but be pulled in.  An ice cold drink and salty snacks, nothing could be better on a warm summer day.  The sun relentlessly beats down on me, and I feel as if I'm corned with no escape.  I escape the roar of the crowd  and find refreshing shade, but no longer can I watch the game I paid my hard earned dollars to attend.  Out of the corner of my eye, a  store catches my eye.  Immediately as I enter the store, I'm struck by the bounty of hats located on the wall.  Baseball caps of every design, style, color.  Flat rimmed, blue, red, every color combination one could think of.  My mind races at the endless possibilities.  On the floor, one lonely hat lies.  A plain, blue baseball cap, with a simple design, with a big clearance sticker plastered on the rim.  Everyone else saw nothing in the hat, but the beauty of it's simplicity is all I need.  As I walk back to my seat, the hat protects me from the vengeful sun, and I focus on the game. 
8  ObjectWriting / Object Writing Word Of The Day / Flag on: February 07, 2019, 06:30:30 PM
Bombs burst, producing a deafening blast of sound.  With each burst, the sky lit up like it was daylight, only for a curtain of darkness to immediately be slammed down.  As each wave passed under the ship, the wood creaked and moaned with exhaustion.  The taste of gunpowder spread throughout the air.  Enemy soldiers moved around like ants on the barricade, becoming more visible with each new wave.  Each man performed his task, firing a gun, steering the ship, helping the wounded.  A bomb burst above the ship, a downpour of steel and fire onto the ship.  But above it all was the flag.  Red, white, and blue, tattered, but still hanging.  Defiant the flag flew, no matter the odds.

Thought I would just add mine onto yours!

The aroma hits me in the face, the very smell gives me a jolt as my body anticipates what's coming.     A morning ritual performed daily that I never tire of.  As I take the first sip, the searing hot coffee hits my tongue, but a careful sip keeps the pain to a minimum.  Tastes of cocoa and roasted beans spreads through my mouth.  An intense flavor every adult craves and yet would make most children cringe.   After the first few sips, not just my vision sharpens, but my outlook of the day.   The coffee gives me not just caffeine, but clarity.  In a instant I'm yanked away from a dream world and back to reality.  For how long I cannot say, but that's when I'll be ready with a second cup.
