Just a Tree #100Words for the #FridayFictioneers

Good morning! Welcome to my little efforts on #FlashFriday for the #Friday Fictioneers. Today's prompt was the following photo. Here's my take on it.

It looked like a tree.

Long snaking limbs climbed in a profusion of tangles toward the sky, fanning out around a great central shaft covered in bark-like skin. The leaves on the branches rustled in the wind. Except, no wind stirred against Jericho’s cheeks and hair.

The damn thing was rustling on its own!

The "oak" whipped out a tendril, snatching a hapless sparrow with a surprised squawk, and yanked it out of the sky into the maw of a large "knot hole". Subtle crunching sounds echoed beneath the rustling and Jericho shuddered.

Yeah, it looked like a tree!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great weekend. See you for Six Sentence Sunday! Happy reading! :)
