Visual Dare #20 – Cascade

Though no water had flowed through the aqueduct for time beyond counting, the granite waterways were intact, sturdy as the day the first stones had been laid by beings long since vanished into the stars. The sun filled more and more of the sky, its deep red light casting shadows like bloodstains on the remnants of lost civilizations. The sky flickered, and flashed, as the sun announced to all who would look that its work was done. Its farewell gift to this world was a rush of plasma over granite, echoing days of yore as it consumed the world entire.

  1. Nicely done! The images really pop out in each sentence. I especially like that last sentence!!! Haunting.

  2. Strong imagery and such heartache over the world lost. Reminded me a bit of the world of Charn, after Jadis utters the Deplorable World. You can feel the earth in its death-throes. Love it.
