The Clearing

The Clearing

A light is seen in the darkness. Traveling slowly, punctiliously, upon the forest floor, through the decomposing bodies of looming giants above, my body trembled with fear and anticipation of what lay ahead.

Emerging from the dark, foreboding forest, a light is seen in the distance. Creeping cautiously, a clearing is spied. The warmth of light permeating the trees and fresh air from the stagnant, oppressive heat of darkness lavished new life on my soul.

Breathe in. Breathe out. Life rushes into my lungs after what seems like months, years, wandering blindly beyond the fray.

My life begins again today.


Written for: Week 7 – 100 Word Wednesday

How to participate? A few guidelines as we begin….

  1. Simply check my feed, or search the reader, for the 100WW or tag #100WW, post each Wednesday. I’ll also be posting on my Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook Feeds.
  2. Write your submission on your blog, Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook Feed and ping back to the weekly blog post. Feel free to use the image provided or your own. Please do credit the artist whose image we use – Links provided 🙂
  3. I’ll provide a Weekly Summary, or Windup, of posts on or by Tuesday; take the opportunity to read and comment on your fellow bloggers posts {keeping in mind to give each other grace and space}. I’ll try to read them all, but I can’t post your submission in the Weekly Windup if you haven’t posted before the end of the weekend but I’ll do my best to catch ’em all!
  4. Have fun! I enjoy reading your challenge submissions 🙂
