100 Word Challenge – Bricks Gorilla Yellow Running Pretty

Yellow flecks of the pretty sunset dance on the leaves sparkling with dew.

Running water can be heard a short distance away

A wall made of bricks is standing tall and proud in the distance, like a silver back gorilla

It rains again

The leaves on the trees seem to wilt with the water cascading down on them

Fallen leaves rustle

Silence

The forest is alive, yet still

It seems as though the landscape has been taken out of a fairy-tale

However, it is real

The rain stops

Bird song echoes though the trees

Civilization is so close, yet far…

  1. Hi Estella,

    I really enjoyed reading your story this week. Well done.
    I loved the descriptions you’ve used and the contradictions throughout – Alive but still – silent but not – so close but far!

    Super work.
    Looking forward to reading more of your adventures.
