What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week I will post a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word. The word does not have to appear in your five sentences, just use it for direction.
This week: SUNSHINE
Winter was cruel to the animals in the woods, while the bigger animals slept away with their full bellies and warm fur, the smaller critters scattered to one place to another to find someplace warm and cozy.
As the snow would fall from the sky, it would continue to rise from the ground, making things harder for the mice and insects to find some scraps of food.
The woods still buzzed with life though, the deer still went out here and there, looking for some sort of grains from the frozen stalks in the countryside, the crows still made their way into the sky despite the blistering temperatures.
Through time the snow begins to melt and slowly turn back into ice again, all of the little critters stay indoors as the big ones wake up for a midday snack and don’t understand why they keep slipping and sliding when they walk on the lake to get a drink of water.
By the end of the days of winter, the woods has become more greener again, the trees have more life to them and the sun shines more in the day to awaken all of the animals from their slumber and then winter turns into spring.
