Here is this week’s entry into the weekly challenge brought to us by the lovely Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.
Here are the rules: Use the photo as inspiration, write a hundred(ish) words – and share! Here goes my offering for this week – and I welcome your comments again!

Stark,eerie and plausible. Great combination!
Thank you, Erin!
Very good Freya you raise a very important issue that confronts all of us. Well done.
Thank you, Michael – it’s a bit stark even for me, but it’s continuing the theme of my work in progress (which is, also, stark…).
Look forward to reading more Freya.
Freya, no hope at all? Silent
In this case, no. But not in reality (I hope!).
We need to make amends with mother earth or your well written fiction may become a reality.
I totally agree…..
So sad and tragically all too close to happening. Pensive.
Thank you, Victoria.
Good and scary – this could happen. Thanks, Nan
Thank you, Nan.
Nicely done, very topical.
Thank you, Sandra.
Very nice – you had me picturing “bejewelled spiders’ webs” in my mind and then you switched to the stark reality of the situation. I hope it doesn’t become our reality.
Yes, it is a bit of shock turn from such beauty to such horror. I hope it doesn’t become our reality either.
Great imagery in this piece Freya and of course though this is a stark and sad piece ,it is terrific!
Ahh, a story after my own apocalyptic heart. Well told with your memories of the past – especially the dew on the spider webs, I remember it well.
I think a lot of us have apocalyptic hearts… I am quite amazed at exactly how dark I can be, without too much effort… Yes, those spiders’ webs remind me of particular places, that’s for sure 🙂
You’ve deftly painted a bleak and disturbingly believable picture. Well done.
Thank you, Rochelle.
Well that was depressing.
My brain works that way, I’m afraid…
Lol…well somebody’s needs too. We wouldn’t want sunshine and lollipops all the time, they wouldn’t be as special.
Freya, what is scariest about this story is the chances of it being true. A sobering wake up and smell the coffee tale. Well done!
Thank you – yes, I’m concerned that it’s not too far out of the realms of possibility…
Seriously! It’s scary.
Good analogy to the earth and how it is diminishing due to our own disrespect for it.
Thank you, Lorri.
