Winner – Less Than 100 Words competition, Pure Vacuum, June 19 2015.
– 100 words on the subject of Beauty.
“Rarely the earth did speak. A pure vacuum where nothing could exist – not one sound, not a bird, not the wind. Within that moment of silence you realise the sea of noise within which we dwell. Baneful forces shook the earth so viciously that children cried from simple instinct. Even a teacher wept that day, tears streaming down her cheeks as she gathered up students – though nowhere was really safe anymore. That deadly, malevolent force of beautiful violence erupting out into our world and shaking it viciously so that all our certainties had in an instant been thrown down.”
