The PLANET OF DREAMS
I am on another planet that is distant from Earth (maybe I came there alone on a spaceship). The sky there can be like it is on Earth or it can be of another colour - pink or orange, bright orange. Whilst walking there - alone, not meeting anyone else - I find forests with trees, many of which are very old and thick ones, but these trees are unusual because they have blue, red and purple leaves. And some of the trees are so large that they "disappear" up into the sky, which means I cannot see their top. I find berries and fruits of unusual shapes, and their taste is amazing, exciting, both sweet and sour ; it does not remind me of any fruits or berries that I tried on Earth. When I hold them in my hand, they feel like velvet or silk. Walking further, I also find gold colour waterfalls and beautiful fountains, but these fountains constantly change colours - from silver to violet, from orange to light blue, etc. When I am in a valley with beautiful, old, cliffs and mountains, it seems to me that I hear something like soft voices coming from somewhere - maybe like an echo. All of this makes me feel happy and relaxed, and I sit on the ground, looking into the distance. Sometimes, I see large, unfamiliar birds flying over the valley, and they make some unique, fascinating sounds. There is an ocean of some dreamy colour on this planet - maybe like green or purple. It is quiet and still, but its surface shines or produces sparks - gold colour sparks. On the shore, I find emeralds and sapphires just laying there. After the rain, a rainbow appears in the sky, a very bright one, but then it descends directly to the ground, hanging low just above it. I come up to the rainbow and put my hand through it. My hand feels cool and fresh, moving through all of its colours. The nights are very quiet, but sometimes I see the stars "dancing" in the night sky - moving and "jumping", forming some shapes. And, at other times, the night sky suddenly becomes illuminated by bright, orange colour, which then slowly fades away, and the night quietly goes on.
I have a castle on this planet. It is an old castle, with long staircases and a number of windows. There are large rooms, and in some of them there are pictures hanging on the walls, showing, for example, trees in the woods or people in the fields. In the hall downstairs, there is a fireplace, and I sit in front of it, in one of the old armchairs. In that hall, there is also a beautiful chandelier hanging from the ceiling, and it is made of something like crystals. Whilst inside the castle, I often look at the pictures, and I like walking through long, narrow corridors. In some of the rooms, there are tall shelves with old books, and some of the paper looks almost ancient. It is quiet inside, especially at night. In the mornings, I like to look out of the windows and into the distance, watching the beginning of a new day. I walk in and out through a small wooden door, and, having left the building, I go down the stairs made of stone.
Outside the castle, I have a large garden that is like an alleyway. Various sorts of flowers are growing there, many of which have unusual, unique shapes. There are roses - red ones, blue ones, white ones and orange ones. And some of the bushes are quite tall. There are marble statues standing in the distance. I like to walk through the garden, looking at the castle and then leaving it far behind me, thinking about something, maybe even dreaming about something... It is the planet of harmony, happiness and dreams.
