Kimberly Gould’s Picture Choice:

Title: Dreams

Saline mist filled her nose. Her breath echoed the waves, inhale, exhale.

It wasn’t the first time she’d dreamed of the sea. It wasn’t even the tenth.

Cold water tickled her toes, white foam feeling almost like fur. Everything was crisp, tangible. Something cold buzzed her ear. She swatted at the insect.

“Oh, Misty,” she murmured, when her fingers connected with real fur, with her cotton pillow case. She’d been dreaming, again.

Now Misty dreamed and she couldn’t help but wonder what the kitten dreamed about. Scooping the tiny furry body in her paired hands, she set the kitten atop the piano and made breakfast before returning to the piece she was composing. Although she only had a piano, she could hear the timpani, the horns, mimicking the waves crashing. The strings played to the foam and salt. The woodwind a cold breeze.

No one would guess she’d never actually been there.
