From Tree to Shining Tree – Friday Fictioneers

Friday Fictioneers – a wonderful collection of a photo-based 100 word story.  >HERE<

It was nearly dark, that weird time when shadows played with the minds.
The elder tree did not mind the games, but had not time at the moment.  He had a calling.

The open knothole, turned up, began to glow and a pale yellow light shot forth to the clouds.
The beam bounced off clouds, sailed from any surface, striking all other trees who responded in kind.

Slowly, they started to move, ripping their roots from the ground. Their many legs now carried them faster and faster across landscapes, crushing homes and people in their wake.

The invasion had begun…finally.

“Karma”

By Scott L Vannatter

___________________________

I was the first to spot the, um, accident.

“Joe, lookee, an honest to goodness Acto’God.”

“Samuel, Samuel.  That’s not an Act of God.”

“Well, then smartie-pants, what is it?”

“That there’s a perfect example of Karma.”

“How’s that?”

“Well, see, an Act of God is when the storm blows the tree on your car and insurance won’t pay.”

“Yeah, so?”

“This is Karma because, Ken’s at work, Hallie’s home, and that’s not their car.”

“So, how does that make it Karma?”

“It’s the same car that’s been there for the last two weeks this time each day.”

“Oh, Ah…”

Limb from Limb

“See, Daddy, there are gnomes and trolls and hobbits and…” Sarah squealed with delight.

Ted looked at the huge tree.  It had been awhile since he had used his imagination enough to “see” something like the creatures Sarah saw in the branches and limbs.  He looked harder, squinting a bit.  He actually sweated with effort for about five minutes before shrugging.

“Sorry, Sweetheart, I just don’t see them there.”

“Maybe I can help?”  The wooden gnome coughed loudly to the staring father.

Sarah clapped her hands and squealed again, even as her father hit the ground in a dead faint.

Tree Mendous Accomplishment

Today, just a 5:33 second video clip about moving a tree. Watch this clip and think about how much we could do as a people if we could simply cooperate together for the betterment of the world instead of ourselves.
