Friday fictioneer – nature in control


This us my submission in this week’s Friday Fictioneer


Friday Fictioneers  Photo …copyright

As always, man thinks he can control nature, imposing himself larger than life, rigid as a cement wall. Ignorants clearing space to fill what once was green meadows, gardens of fresh scented plants , canopies of shades of green and hues of rainbow, with grey harsh identical towers.
But, the cracks of control, fatigue of cement, angry words placed by angry ones who think they own the world ‘NO TRESPASSES’ is totally ignored as the seedlings overlooked in the clearing, wind their magical branches in and out the cold metal grills. The fragrance smothering the putrid smell of cold man’s structures.

Author: Travelling Macs

A mum to 2 grown up children who always make me proud, a wife and a full time school teacher. I love eating great food but am not motivated to cook. Love traveling around this great country in which I live. Often found traveling with my husband Brian. I write for pleasure and if it's read (and enjoyed) by others then that's a bonus! 2014 saw me begin the 'new' me. Working hard at leaving the fear of 'what if' behind and replacing it with YOLO adventures. :)

  1. Love the imagery and the descriptions rich with color. This has a tantalizing richness to it. I like it. 😉

  2. I like the idea of nature taking back its own. Good job.


  3. Nature takes over — in a way we were of a similar mind this week, darling. Good story!

  4. The jungle is closing in. Developers, be afraid.

  5. Dear Macs,

    From dust we came and to dust we shall return. Loved the imagery and nature taking back her own.



    • Thank you Rochelle. I look forward to trying some more of your Friday Fictioneers. Enjoyed reading the posts of others after submitting mine. Glad you created it 🙂

      • Dear Macs,

        I thought perhaps this was your first go with us. We’ve had so many new writers join that sometimes I have a hard time keeping track. But then that’s one of the exciting things about being the ring mistress of this global circus. So Welcome.

        Wish I could take credit for creation, but I’ve kept it going for over a year now since Madison Woods passed the baton to me.

  6. Cool take and I loved the imagery:-)

I enjoy reading comments so don't forget to add one please :)
