Day Twenty-Eight: Frog
Flood Part Twenty-Four
“What’s wrong sweetheart?”
“Everything! This isn’t what I expected…”
“No, but we were out at sea…we couldn’t see what was going on here!”
“Careful where you step dear…mind that, that’s glass…” Fragments of glass splintered beneath planks of wood, razor-sharp sheets of corrugated iron threatened to serrate anything that passed close enough and crushed, fractured homes disintegrated beneath survivors feet. “…everything’s gone…trees down like matchsticks, homes lost…”
“We’ll be okay sweetie…”
“…and illness, we should get our jabs in the Red Cross tent…and Eeeewwww!”
“What else?”
“Frogs…all these frogs!”
“Well, at least it was good for the amphibians!”

    You have painted such a vivid and disatrous picture of the world; maybe they were better off afloat. Brilliant description. And still the humour with one of your characters. x

    Oh, I love the descriptive words because they make the scene so sharp! And those glorious frogs fit right into the mix!! Wonderful – well, in theory – but in real life, ewwwwww!!


I'd love to hear from you...
