Dreaming of a family

K.L Kali is the host for the Thursday Writephoto prompt!

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a cobbled alleyway with green doors located along it.

I tiptoe along the alley

Not wanting anyone to know I’m there

There are doors on either side

Some noise comes from behind each one

A baby’s cry

A child’s laugh

A mom singing

A dad calling out to his wife

The sounds of life, love, and family

I however

Had no family.

Each night, I’d walk this alley

Wishing, hoping


Of a family.

Some day maybe

A door would open

And I’d be taken in

By a loving set of parents

Until then

A girl can only dream…
