Stir Fry Eggs and Tomatoes

PROMPT: Food Writing Competition 2020

    I cannot help but to feel as if a huge weight has been lifted off my chest when the aroma of frying eggs and tomatoes creeps its way through the various hallways and doors of my home. The smell of olive oil and fresh eggs is arguably one of the best out there, beating out all those various herbs and flowers by a long shot.

In the background, her little sister ROSE is also working, but she is much less diligent than LILY, throwing things haphazardly into the ziploc bag. She drops the bag and steps on a large, mossy rock.

ROSE

Watch me, Lily, I can reach that branch right...

They came in the middle of the night, sweeping down across the land like a plague of locusts, consuming everything in their path, not caring for friend or foe, for adult or child, for men or women. The marauders came from the far north, wielding heavy battle axes stained with the blood of the previous raids. Huge men wearing animal skins and bear furs, with white skin and hair the color of gold. Who knew that people with such white...

The Fist of Justice: Our Movement to Improve what is Necessary

PROMPT: Environmental Journalism Competition 2020

 Imagine kicking a pole over and over again and then breaking your foot. You simply could have quit kicking the pole, so you wouldn't get a broken foot. 
Often, as humans, we find ourselves struggling in circumstances that we created. I may go as far as asserting that everything, every obstacle, every predicament, every dilemma the human society has ever encountered, was generated by our conceptions, conclusions, and concepts. Such is the case with climate change. 
 Every day I gaze...

A Time to Live

PROMPT: My December Competition 2019

    The icy wind rattles the window panes, howling outside, signaling the arrival of the winter. This year it arrives suddenly, quickly ushering out the prolonged fall, with drizzling rain replaced with snow, leaves replaced with frost, brown everywhere covered up with dazzling white, sparkling, gleaming in the few short hours of sunlight.
