It's Wednesday, Time to Write

Welcome back to Wednesday Wit and Wisdom. You will find all about this meme and the instructions hereThe purpose of this link up is to help us share some stories we might have milling about in our minds as we look at particular photos.  Many of us have mentioned that we could "write a story" about a photo of a barn, an old store, or an abandoned residence we have found or shown to others. I thought it would be fun to find a photo and write a short story.  You can add a bit of "wit" or "wisdom" if you like. Give it a try and join in!

Here's my picture and story for this week:

She lay discarded, her heart trampled, encased in mummy’s wrapping. Still alive, filled with revenge and hungry, she quietly moved on tiny feet and began her path of destruction. Flaming red, she reached for any tired and parched being ripe for consumption. She laughed as the tallest and grandest fell at her feet. Gray clouds surrounded her. Despite water from the sky, nothing served as an effective deterrent to her fierce vengeance.

Suddenly, she was born in the air, sparkling like a fairy on the wind. She pointed her tiny wand at yet another victim. Evil cackled and danced, swirling in the wind above her blackened path. Poisons filled the air, putting her to rest under piles of debris. She rested, gasped for another breath, surrounded by blackness. Would she lay in quiet death, or would her fury bring her back?

I wrote this for a short prose competition some time ago. Now it's your turn. Find a picture and share with us a story or poem.
