The Shining

by Begin Again

The ribbon-like water slithers like a snake. The heavy branches moan beneath the howling wind.

Twigs snap. Eyes glow in the dark. An unknown creature disturbs a flock of birds; flapping wings echo as they escape. An owl hoots.

The glowing campfire embers fade. Lost, a wide-eyed child shivers in fear.

A light faintly glimmers in the distance. His heart pounds.

The glow explodes above the horizon, chasing away the night shadows.

Morning has arrived.
