Bikurgurl 100 Word Weekly Writing Challenge —Week 4
Fear spread throughout the forest like a cancer.
We felt the vibrations from the drilling machines long before we saw them.
The birds and creatures left their homes in the canopy.
The leviathan attacked at dawn and tore down trees, slaughtering everything in its path.
The river ran red with the blood of the innocent and the sun turned black from the suffocating smoke.
Those of us who were left ran for our lives.
The machines rested; peace, if but for a short time, was restored.
Thanks Bikurgurl for a rather challenging photo this week.
