Prophecy

In the time of the Vermi, Horza the Elder stood before the miracle of The One and lifted his seeing-hole in ritual praise.

“Behold how The One starts in twilight and stretches to dawn. His links are become the grand pathways to eternity, the trail to everlasting light.”

And it is told how Mocca, smallest of the Vermi, kept his seeing-hole on the sand, yet his sounding-hole was heard by ones who repeated it at the time of the Ending:

“Yet iron becomes rust, becomes the sand all worms crawl on.”

Flashie Friday! Er, Saturday and Sunday, too!

Flashies are fun! Bonita Franks, AKA Erin O’Quinn, and I try to do this as often as possible, and y’all are invited to participate! Here are 6 photo prompts. Choose one (or more, if you’re feeling really writerly) and compose us something! Poem, short fiction, maybe even nonfiction memoir. Here’s the catch. 300 word limit. Sorry about that, but there ya go. It wouldn’t be a challenge if there weren’t limits. For those who’ve already written something in the FB thread, if you want to expand (limit there is 100 words, folks!), here’s your chance. Post your contribution in the comments (please identify which image, and give your piece a title), and either this evening or tomorrow, I’ll make individual posts of each of them (under your names of course) UNLESS you request that I not do that. To make it easier to identify the images, they’re captioned.

Ready? Great! Here are the pics! And… GO!!!!
