    As he crept over the field toward the enemy, Warren noticed how beautiful the sky was that morning. Yellow and orange clouds entwined themselves with the soft blue light of daybreak into a glorious, glowing tapestry. As he paused to take in the splendor above, a thunderous force threw him to the ground. When his eyes reopened, nearly everything was red. The colors didn't go together at all well he decided before his eyes closed again.

    1. Thank you! And thanks for stopping by to read my little stories!

  2. Such vivid writing KR, I think I felt that thunderous jolt...

    1. Thanks! I didn't want to be too specific about what happened since the character would probably never know, so I made it "a thunderous force." I'm pleased that you think it works here!

  3. that's war without beauty,love and humanity

  4. Nothing about the conflict of war goes well with anything.

    1. There is little I can add to that. Thanks for stopping by and commenting! It does man a lot when people leave their thoughts on my blog.
