A ‘Murder’ Drabble or a 99-Worder?

I wrote a Drabble,

then I removed a word;

and found that I had a ninety-nine worder.

The difference between the one

and the other

was ‘……’ –

for that was the word that I chose

to remove.

What does that prove?

And what can you do when you’re

trying

to be precise?

Spell-check once…

then spell-check twice.

Everything should then be

nice

(you may be able to fine a better

descriptive word

than that.

‘Nice’ is okay;

but, if you take my advice,

use it

and you may end up

where I am today!)

In Cornwall!

Yay!

Forestal – 100 Word Story #1

Forestal of New Forest 08-08-2015

From the Forestal of New Forest 08-08-2015

Here I stand

The Forestal

The Guardian of this Forest;

The New Forest

And here I have stood for nearly a thousand years; seeing men, women, kings and queens, come and go. I was strong; my Forest has survived and flourished.

Until recently.

The Trees know that their days are numbered; some still sentient enough to be counting down that number.

I have seen much and weathered many storms; but, I am no fool – I know that I cannot rule when there is nothing left to rule for.

It seems that the end is nigh.
