Friday Fictioneers Challenge March 3rd 2017

This week’s PHOTO PROMPT © Rochelle Wisoff-Fields
You can read her post here:

ff-1st-marchEnvironmentalists had refused to acknowledge the possibility that the weather was not simply changing, but being cancelled out.
Thunderclouds skimmed across the skies in search of others, and trees reached out their leafy branches trying to interfere and touch the untouchable.
Even the sun could not dislodge those seeking primary place in the heavens.
Shrouded in cloud, its majestic glow eked out from behind a tardy cluster trying to join forces with the one ahead. Should they become one, it would begin a chain reaction leading to catastrophe for the world as we knew it.
Zeus was recalling his armies.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Love the classical touch at the end.

  2. “…the weather was not simply changing, but being cancelled out.” Per usual, old Zeus is up to no good. Nicely done.

  3. Now there’s an idea–a world without weather. I would love to see what happens next. Who exactly will Zeus recall? Will the gods from other pantheons take over for whoever the Olympian recalls? Exciting!

  4. Rommy says:

    From the scientific to the mythological – interesting progression.

  5. Dale says:

    I loved the ancient Greek gods aspect to this!

  6. Dear Pensitivity,

    Aha, so Zeus is behind climate change! 😉 Nicely penned.



  7. Life Lessons of a Dog Lover says:

    Very creative take on the prompt that was nicely written.

  8. gahlearner says:

    That must be the most original explanation for climate change ever. 😀
