Here’s my take on this week’s writing prompt from Sammi Cox. Our theme today was “emptiness”, a subject that inspired me to attempt both the prose and poetry challenge (the latter is my first ever haiku, so be nice!).
We’re met by static… not the kind of static with sound and colour, but a static so deadly that it seems icy. I close my eyes, but nothing changes; there’s no light, and there’s no life, either… not anymore.
Shutting out the light,
And inviting in the cold,
We close our eyes tight.
