Cale ensured he arrived at the beach before sunrise. The sun peaked over the mountains in the distance. Then slowly the light crept in to highlight foam capped ocean waters. The light encompassed the night sky, turning darkness into a washed out pale blue accented by a wash of orange. 

The brilliant sunrise continued and Cale felt the welcome warmth in his limbs, humming in  rhythm with the tide. He was thrilled, filled with a buoyant happiness he hadn’t felt in ages. 

Shifting his backpack, he noticed the shimmer of gold dust raining down on him, as his body began to float off the beach. 

A radiant sparkle in front of him giggled: ” ‘Second star to the right , straight on ’till morning,’ right?” He smiled, no longer a lost boy.

        My niece and son sang it one day and after that I couldn’t get it out of my head and I thought how awesome that she puts Peter Pan in a song, and you added something special to it with your 100 words.

      Thank you JR. They play it often on the radio here, maybe the singers Canadian? I’m not sure.

        You’re welcome, no worries. I’m finding these 100 word challenges fun, but a bit challenging in a good way. 🙂
