Prompt 2: Down the Rabbit Hole

“If you fell down a rabbit hole, what do you think you’d find?”

Falling down was something I did. A lot. it was apart of my basic make up really. My friends and family made fun of my clumsiness – not in a mean way but in an adoring, loving way. But this right here? It definitely topped the cake. Falling down a literal rabbit hole that is. At first I thought I was dreaming. It wouldn’t be the first weird dream I’ve had. But then again, I didn’t remember falling asleep. I looked around, feeling anxious and peaceful all at once as I took in my surroundings. Anxious because i was seemingly standing on nothing but a black sky dotted with bright stars as rough rocky asteroids floated past me. So close I could touch them. The stars so close that I could feel the heat coming off them. Peaceful as I gazed upon her. The Earth. She really was the green planet, with the blue wiggling it’s way through as fluffy white clouds made their way slowly across what I believed was the Atlantic Ocean. A storm rolling in. Looking at the Earth, I felt insignificant. Tiny. I was in awe of this giant rock floating in space where thousands of billions of living creatures lived and died. I felt humbled. And honored to bear witness to what not a lot of people got to see. I sat down on the black sky, pushing a small golf-ball sized asteroid out of my way, and watched as the clouds overcame the green.
