5 Sentence Fiction Challenge

This weeks prompt is STRENGTH.

Below is my take on the prompt and if you want to read more great five sentence stories follow the link here to find them.

Climate change brought seasons of unpredictability and challenges. The giant green fir was not old, fifteen years at most, but tired. It’s wide reaching branches battered by bullying winds and piercing rain. Its roots deprived of firm soil to grip from the penetrating rainfall and so, exhausted, it fell over. Another victim to the strength of winter’s many storms.


  1. I enjoyed your take on the prompt. You crafted meaningful sentences with word choices that painted a complete picture.

    1. Thank you for your kind comments. I took the photo of the fir tree myself. It was blown down by Hurricane Darwin last week near my home.
