Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!

by Ela Lourenco

Born of the very bowels of the Earth,
Woken from my slumber near the molten core
By the death throes of mankind above
I inched my way upwards towards the skies
Patient, though my travels lasted a millenia
I am one, I am many – a thousand beings
In one mind.
I rose up summoned by a pain so deep
The very Earth echoed its cries
I broke out of the dank soil
To find… nothing
Nothing but a concrete jungle
Abandoned, derelict
Silence blanketed the Earth
Not a creature remained
And now the only life
Is mine…

  1. Marge Simon says:

    Love the vision you conjure!

  2. Love the organic feel of this poem – there’s such a sense of growth and death – that first the skyscrapers thrust themselves from the earth and now, long after their death, comes the creature. There’s so much here that we could discuss – nice work.

    Wonderfully eerie, and a great twist.
