100 words or less and must use the words: valley, mission, and record. Deadline September 15th @ 9pm UK time.
Echoes of September
I sit in the sun content watching the gracefulness of the butterflies. The beauty of the Valley of Death is surprising – maybe the record from the Good Book is wrong.
Maybe not, I feel tension building in me; September must be close. A decade here and the shadows can only touch me once a year.
It’s nearly time to die again, and my mission is not to scream this time.
With a last look at my eternity, I know my peace will return for another year, so I close my eyes and prepare to burn.
