“Clean Slate”

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Clean Slate.”

Explore the room you’re in as if you’re seeing it for the first time. Pretend you know nothing. What do you see? Who is the person who lives there?

I stepped into a room that appears to be a bedroom. How do I know? There are twin beds in the  room. They are dressed and waiting to give the next visitors and peaceful rest.

Next to the farthest bed is a writing desk. A little unkept but not overly cluttered. There is still space to search the web on the laptop or write a best-selling novel. Maybe create a great blog.

The antique dresser is covered with photographic equipment instead of being dressed in period pieces to bring out its beauty. The dresser is probably being used to hold the camera and accessories because there’s no space to put it elsewhere.

A bookcase nearby has a few books on its shelf, but there is space for more to take up residence with the few.

The walls are a neutral color, rather blah. No pictures hanging to introduce color, or even life to the area. There is a bit of color in the room–a red chair and several colors in the bed coverings. 

The room is calling out ‘don’t judge me yet, I’m far from complete’. Come back again soon and you will see a transformation that you thought couldn’t be. I promise you.
