Use this week's prompt to explore ideas of displacement: the fear and wonder at being transported to a place you've never seen before. You might be transported by imagination, a dream, illness, madness, death, a supernatural event or some freak of nature. But when or where would you go and how would the difference manifest itself?
Guest Judge: Vic Kerry
In "Scarecrow" Vic runs with a metaphorical and very dark interpretation of Elton John's classic song. Kenneth Cavendish survives a tornado but his road back home is no so smoothly paved.
Read Scarecrow and more in "Song Stories" from Song Story Press. Available on Amazon for Kindle this week.
