A three-haiku story…

Chuck Wendig issued a flash fiction challenge today: use three simple haikus (the 5/7/5 structure we all did at school) to tell a single story. He’s giving away some writing e-books; if you want to enter, go here.

Here’s my dodgy little contribution, which is also posted on his page, but I thought I’d share it here. I wrote it about Canberra’s 2003 firestorm. That was a hell of a day…

Sirens wail alarms.
The firestorm approaches;
the sky turns to ash.

Trails of cars snake free
of flaming suburbia.
Will their homes survive?

Some lose everything.
Others are more fortunate.
The city rebuilds.
