Five Sentence Fiction – Flame. What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word. The word does not have to appear in your five sentences, just use it for direction. This week: Flame
Thunderous deafening roars, it gallops towards
consuming all in its wake, devil mouth of blazoned red opened to devour.
Blackened skies, smoke filled clouds, ash burns red and hits the ground, heat intense
it seeks me out, unrelenting.
Animals scurry to escape, calling out running frightened, burned or death their only fate
it spares nothing, it forges on unforgiving.
Crosses rivers, crosses roads, it jumps and ducks
and weaves, searching for its prey, it stops at nothing, infiltrates.
I’m left, searching for what I use to be, charcoal black
bare of leaves, suffocated, struggling my death complete
I’ve been swallowed.
