I’m hopping on to Suzanne Burke’s (Soooz) weekly Flash Fiction Challenge again. Come join in at Soooz’s blog– Welcome to the World of Suzanne Burke. The rules are simple, write whatever we choose in whatever form for the #Photoprompt Flash Challenge, not more than 750 words. I wrote in a Haibun poetic form.

Casualties of a Silent War
Suspended in wait while idling in neutral, nothing is certain, nor will ever be the same. The Mother Goddess reveals the consequences of our decisions. A cruel awakening descends upon us, throwing us a glimpse, an acrid taste of what we’ve missed along the way – or perhaps, what we’ve forgotten.
In the bliss of ignorance, choosing not to hear the call, happy to remain invisible contributing to the noise, happy not attracting attention from the powers that be, a desperate attempt to dodge the path of ominous events to come.
I choose to stay in the now and the know, rather than gripping on to the unknown, writhing with fear, camouflaged under nature’s cover where I observe from.
She watches us, hidden and inconspicuous to the naked eye and the passerby. But the all-knowing sees all and straddles in wait for the world to respond.
Mother Nature awaits us
To make the right move
