The Daily Post: The Devil is in the Details Assignment

She was alone.

Peace within a thought so simple as that.

Glancing out the window of her own world, she noticed the fire ant hill had sunk to ground level from the heaviest rain of previous days, the mound which had stood higher than the ground has splashed down to nothingness with the green grass, soon to become inactive as the cooler air of fall crept in.

Bright, sparkling green in the cloudiness of early morning; dew or rain slowly making it’s way down the leaves of flora. Drip, drip, drip; slowly dripping the precious drops of live-giving fluid back to the earth. A cycle really, one used over and over again since the beginning of time. The earth gives and the earth receives. The cloudy, drippy morning was doing the most natural thing in the world, rejuvenating the earth; it was almost like she could feel the energy movement taking place outside, being revived to life.

No gentle breeze interrupted the steady drip, drip, drip of the sustenance needed to sustain life as she knew it. The steady fall of rain, the steady drip, drip, drip of the earth drinking this life-giving fluid. A cat drifts by her view and drinks from a bowl of fresh rainwater. She wonders if this life-giving fluid from the heavens is as special to the feline as it is to earth, wonders if this kitty will have nine lives.

The sun begins to peek through the clouds; the dew begins to evaporate back into the air, getting ready for another rainstorm sometime in the not too distant future. Instead of bright, sparkling green, the world is lit up with moments of sunshine which seem to change the color of the plants. They were all smiling at the world, smiling at each other, knowing their purpose in the grand scheme of things and sharing it proudly.

Mother Sun soon slid back behind her hiding place and the world was bright, sparkly green again. But the plants, the flora, still had a slight, sunshiny smile as they continued their drip, drip, drip of life-giving fluid.

Peace within a thought so simple as that.

She was alone.
