The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!
My Erased Oasis
by Asena Lourenco
Heavenly birdsong soared across the crisp air,
The vibrant greens could comfort me anywhere,
But familiar smiles came from not only our kind,
But the neighbouring creatures in which companions we still find.
The sun beamed brilliantly as it guarded us from afar,
Though the strength of its light was never our brightest star,
But a majestic mammal with brilliant trunks and tusks
That would stay by our sides from dawn until dusk.
Yet as the new day began, singing a different tune,
Our sanctuary soon became historic ruin,
As outsiders came and destroyed the life and the love
That once, we had, and can now only dream of.
