Weekend Writing Prompt #50 – Evergreen – The Evergreen was Timeless.


Prose Challenge – Write a story with a word limit of 125 words on the theme of ‘timelessness’.

As kids the evergreen was timeless. We pushed through the thick canopy, carved labyrinths between the trucks of trees awash with greenery.

We built cubby houses, with lookouts with no memory of what we looked out for as the world and the evergreen was ours.

Every kid in the street enjoyed the excitement of the make-believe we created, monsters were just around the corner, aliens had to be fought off, explorers scurried through openings and found birds nests sometimes with eggs, often times long abandoned. But mostly we were invisible to authority.

We found ourselves in caverns of green, hidden from the outside world where we engaged in secreting of our treasures.

I wandered by yesterday, the evergreen as timeless as ever it was.
