Sara’s challenge for this weekend:
Today’s Sunday Writing Prompt: Choose a planet, and create a colony
This can be based today…100 years from now…3000 years from now. It can be a colony of humans, animals, or alien beings. You can write on the building of the colony, the triumphs or trials of an established colony, the ultimate demise of the colony…whatever you like! Choose an existing planet, or discover a new one. When writing, think of it more like a novel or movie, and less like a check-list. Bring the reader into your unique world.

They gathered at the threshold, seven planets on the edge of extinction with only one hope.
The Black Hole appeared every ten millennia, and for most, humanoid life had long since perished. Greed, anger, war, pollution and ignorance had all taken a toll, depleting each of its natural resources so that only minimal life forms could survive.
The colonies were simplistic, tiny creatures adaptable to their environment and habitat.
Who knew what lay beyond The Eye in the Sky. None knew from whence they had come all those years ago, and no doubt no-one would know what the future held.
Did it matter? Life was a circle. It was never ending, sometimes deviating from its natural arc as circumstances warped and distorted it, but always getting back on course and finding its way here.
In the blink of The Eye they were gone, leaving behind The Darkness, and becoming part of a New Light to begin again.
