Sunrise brings Hope

“Wake up!” mom nudged her hard enough to make her sit upon her bed.

After a big yawn, and a stretch Prema walked with empty buckets in her hand towards a destination where the water truck would station. 

While she waited in a queue for the truck to arrive, ‘Despite no water in our pipes, Life is beautiful.’ she muttered as she saw how the sun broke the spell of darkness with one drop of shine at a time.

She brought the two buckets of water to her cottage with the intention that the water crisis will end soon.


In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story that features a bucket of water. What is the condition of the water and what is the bucket for? Drop deep into the weel and draw from where the prompt leads!

We seldom think about those that do not have the luxury of running water. This reminds me, I should. Thank you.

Great attitude, I would say.

This is a great line: "the sun broke the spell of darkness with one drop of shine at a time."

I feel the hope in your story, Ruchira - as beautiful as the sunrise.
