Writing prompt – portal

A natural formation of growing wood or vine that seems to hold a circle of light.The days are gradually growing longer and lighter, but even if the weather is still appalling where you are, if you’re in the northern hemisphere you can cling to the knowledge that spring is heading our way.

And if that journey seems too slow for you, imagine this: strolling in a woodland you come across a curious shining circle. An apparently natural formation of wood or vine has twisted into a loop that appears to contain a view into a glowing day.

Can you step through? If you do, what might you find? Is it really greener and brighter on the other side? Can you write a story or create a work of art that explores these possibilities?
