Left alone writer`s island #20 last redwood

Landscapes once green and vibrant with color now have become barren.
Languid dreams are no longer mine. I am all alone to remember the beginning . . .
Lifeless extensions hanging from a corset of time sprouting nothingness . . .
Landfills gather at the basin of my feet. And tangle hysteria with fear.
Lurking vultures want my flesh for theirs and plant seeds in cored-out worm holes.
Leaning slightly to the proximity of the height, gravity has pulled me closer to the earth.
Leaves on my arms have disintegrated. Lost in the putrid air of destruction.

  1. Oh Lor! Pamela, every post I read on his prompt depresses me further. Please tell me you will survive.......... Can you explain this automatic writing thing: is it the same as what I call a freewrite, but with a first letter kickoff?

  6. Beautitul piece of writing Pamela, even if the images are dark and horrible. Incredible use of language here and it certainly brings your message clear, allows it to stand up from the page.
