PROMPT: Nature Takes the Stand

    As a raccoon I have seen development take away my home. Instead of running through woods and smelling the clean fresh air I'm forced to run through streets that weren't there a week ago. My once beloved home chopped down so someone else could live there. My family's been left homeless, I cant's support them. I'm forced to dig through trash just to survive.

Break In (Writing Streak Day 1)

PROMPT: Writing Streak Challenge Week 2

Thud,thud! Again I hear the perpetual sound. The glass once clear now  smudged and scraped. I spot the perpetrator in tree planning his next dive. The little robin speeds towards the window desperate to get inside. Maybe he sees the cupcakes inside and just wants to join. Who knows what’s going on inside his head.

Bright Lights

PROMPT: Star Wish

    As we fly through the clouds I see the city below from the airplane window. The city's lights act as a beacon bringing us home from the holidays. While not invisible the stars are hard to see. So close to the sky yet clouded by lights below. When I see the stars I wonder what I'm really seeing. Could it simply be a blinking satellite or maybe another plane.
