Hey Coffin Hoppers! Welcome to The Road to Nowhere…

I’ll be posting EIGHT drabbles during the EIGHT days of Coffin Hop this year. At the end of the hop, I’ll be choosing four winners from the comments left on the accumulated posts to each receive a $5 Amazon Gift Card! So speak up, and speak often – each day’s comment will be an additional entry into the random drawing.

While you’re at it, be sure to visit my other two blogs, ‘Spreading the Writer’s Word‘ and ‘Sotet Angyal – The Dark Angel‘ for new features every day, and plenty of goodies up for grabs. And don’t forget to visit the other hard working Coffin Hoppers who are doing their best to make this years hop as spooktacular as possible!

Good luck, and have fun!!!

Small Sacrifices

monumentThank you Father, for this bounty you bestow upon me. On small feet they come, hands overflowing with offerings; small sacrifices to appease the almighty. Their pulse begs me to feed; youthful flesh so tender, muscles plump with nourishing fluids. When a youngling does not return, they believe the little one has been blessed, granted the highest honor; they are among the chosen. Chosen indeed, to fill my gullet and offer more than their tiny hands could ever bear. Occasionally a mother weeps; she too may find comfort in my arms – all she need do is step through the archway.

A Few Details About The Drabble

I belong to a writing group called Pen of the Damned, this image and drabble first appeared as one of our comparative flash features. Click on this Pen of the Damned link to read how the other members drew inspiration from this image as well. Oh, and just a little pat on the back – I’m the photographer, too!
